§ 2.926 FCC identifier.
(a) A grant of certification will list the validated FCC Identifier
consisting of the grantee code assigned by the FCC pursuant to
paragraph (b) of this section, and the equipment product code assigned
by the grantee pursuant to paragraph (c) of this section. See § 2.925.
(b) The grantee code assigned pursuant to paragraph (c) of this section
is assigned permanently to applicants/grantees and is valid only for
the party specified as the applicant/grantee in the code assignment(s).
(c) A grantee code may consist of Arabic numerals, capital letters, or
other characters. The format for this code will be specified by the
Commission's Office of Engineering and Technology. A prospective
grantee or its authorized representative may receive a grantee code
electronically via the Internet at http://www.fcc.gov/eas. The code may
be obtained at any time prior to submittal of the application for
equipment authorization. However, the fee required by § 1.1103 of this
chapter must be submitted and validated within 30 days of the issuance
of the grantee code, or the code will be removed from the Commission's
records and a new grantee code will have to be obtained.
(1) After assignment of a grantee code each grantee will continue to
use the same grantee code for subsequent equipment authorization
applications. In the event the grantee name is changed or ownership is
transferred, the circumstances shall be reported to the Commission so
that a new grantee code can be assigned, if appropriate. See § 2.929(c)
and (d) for additional information.
In the event the grantee name is changed or ownership is transferred,
the circumstances shall be reported to the Commission so that a new
grantee code can be assigned, if appropriate. See § § 2.934 and 2.935 for
(d) The equipment product code assigned by the grantee shall consist of
a series of Arabic numerals, capital letters or a combination thereof,
and may include the dash or hyphen (-). The total of Arabic numerals,
capital letters and dashes or hyphens shall not exceed 14 and shall be
one which has not been previously used in conjunction with:
(1) The same grantee code, or
(2) An application denied pursuant to § 2.919 of this chapter.
(e) No FCC Identifier may be used on equipment to be marketed unless
that specific identifier has been validated by a grant of equipment
certification. This shall not prohibit placement of an FCC identifier
on a transceiver which includes a receiver subject to Suppliers
Declaration of Conformity pursuant to § 15.101 of this chapter, provided
that the transmitter portion of such transceiver is covered by a valid
grant of certification. The FCC Identifier is uniquely assigned to the
grantee and may not be placed on the equipment without authorization by
the grantee. See § 2.803 for conditions applicable to the display at
trade shows of equipment which has not been granted equipment
authorization where such grant is required prior to marketing. Labeling
of such equipment may include model or type numbers, but shall not
include a purported FCC Identifier.
