Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 206 / Thursday, October 25, 2007 / Notices similar wording that expresses the same meaning may be used. The grantee may either provide such a label, an example of which must be included in the application for equipment authorization (FCC Form 731), or must provide adequate instructions along with the module which explain this requirement. In the latter case, a copy of these instructions must be included in the application for equipment authorization. The modular transmitter must comply with any specific rule or operating requirements applicable to the transmitter and the manufacturer must provide adequate instructions along with the module to explain any such requirements. A copy of these instructions must also be included in the FCC Form 731. FCC Form 731 will be modified to accommodate identification and validation of the specific devices approved by this rulemaking. The rule change will benefit manufacturers by allowing greater flexibility in certifying equipment and providing relief from the need to obtain a new equipment authorization each time the same transmitter is installed in a different final product. The rule change in the Second Report and Order will also enable manufacturers to develop more flexible and more advanced unlicensed transmitter technologies. In addition to the rule changes noted above, this requirement is being modified to reflect the growth in the use of the Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum for devices subject to equipment authorization. An adjustment is going to be reported to the OMB due to a reduction in the number of respondents filing the FCC Form 731 with the Commission. The number of responses is filed with both the FCC and the Telecommunications Certification Bodies (TCBs) and the total annual cost is reflected in this submission to the OMB.
