radiated and conducted 15.107 if required)
• The manufacturer must change the FCC label with the new FCC ID (FCC label needs to
contain the FCC ID of the V2 module).
2. IC Certification
• As per FCC.
• ECO Application only.
4. RTTE Directive

Appendix 2. Overview of Approval Requirements
1.European requirements for pre-approved M2M modules (GSM/3G)
Compliance with the R&TTE directive is required for the EU (CE mark) and is mandatory via self
certification. The main requirements involve compliance against article 3.1a, 3.1b and 3.2. Article
3.1a specifies the protection for health and safety. This article covers electrical safety and specific
absorption rate. (Human Exposure to RF) Compliance for electrical safety can normally be
demonstrated via compliance with the EN 60950 safety standard. (Dependant on the final application)
Article 3.1b specifies the protection requirements for EMC where full EMC compliance is normally
required. Approval with the EMC requirements can normally be demonstrated via compliance with
the EN 301 489 series of standards. Article 3.2 specifies the Radio Performance requirements
under spectrum control. Note that pre-approved modules will generally not be required to repeat any
radio performance testing apart from Radiated Spurious Emissions as an end product requirement.
It should be noted that compliance with the GCF (Global Certification Forum) requirements may be
required as this is normally a Network Operator pre-requisite. In most cases these requirements will
have already been met by the module manufacturer, though additional SIM Electrical measurements
may also be required. Note that further requirements will be required should the end product have
an application relevant under the Medical or Automotive environments.
2.North American requirements for pre-approved M2M modules (GSM/3G)
Compliance with the FCC rules is mandatory and will normally be demonstrated via compliance with
FCC Part 15 subpart b for digital equipment which is an EMC spurious emission requirement. Also
required is compliance against FCC parts 22 and 24, which are the general Radio Performance
requirements for the two bands supported in North America.
Note: The radio performance requirement are normally already performed by the module
manufacturer and do not need to be repeated as long as the original module FCC grant requirements
are met; ie; no change in stated antenna gain, no radio co-location requirement and the product is
not used within 20cm of the body. (SAR requirements) Note: Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE)
calculation requirements will be required if SAR is not. For end products, FCC certification is
required via a Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB) or directly via the FCC.
It should be noted that compliance with the PTCRB will normally be required as this is a Network
Operator pre-requisite. In most cases these requirements will have already been met by the module
manufacturer, though additional “Over the Air” (OTA) measurements and administrative updates will
only be required if changes are made to the antenna performance; ie; new antenna added or changed
to the end product.
3.Canadian requirements for pre-approved M2M modules (GSM/3G)
Compliance with the Industry Canada (IC) rules is mandatory. In most cases the
requirements are the same as the FCC rules though a separate application and certification
will be required. Note that possible “occupied bandwidth” measurement maybe needed in
addition to the FCC requirements.
