Sec.  2.906 Supplier's Declaration of Conformity

    (a) Supplier's Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) is a procedure 
where the responsible party, as defined in Sec.  2.909, makes 
measurements or completes other procedures found acceptable to the 
Commission to ensure that the equipment complies with the appropriate 
technical standards. Submittal to the Commission of a sample unit or 
representative data demonstrating compliance is not required unless 
specifically requested pursuant to Sec.  2.945.
    (b) Supplier's Declaration of Conformity is applicable to all items 
subsequently marketed by the manufacturer, importer, or the responsible 
party that are identical, as defined in Sec.  2.908, to the sample 
tested and found acceptable by the manufacturer.
    (c) The responsible party may, if it desires, apply for 
Certification of a

[[Page 32265]]

device subject to the Supplier's Declaration of Conformity. In such 
cases, all rules governing certification will apply to that device.

Sec.  2.909 Responsible Party

    (a) In the case of equipment that requires the issuance of a grant 
of certification, the party to whom that grant of certification is 
issued is responsible for the compliance of the equipment with the 
applicable standards. If the radio frequency equipment is modified by 
any party other than the grantee and that party is not working under 
the authorization of the grantee pursuant to Sec.  2.929(b), the party 
performing the modification is responsible for compliance of the 
product with the applicable administrative and technical provisions in 
this chapter.
    (b) For equipment subject to Supplier's Declaration of Conformity 
the party responsible for the compliance of the equipment with the 
applicable standards, who must be located in the United States (see 
Sec.  2.1077), is set forth as follows:
    (1) The manufacturer or, if the equipment is assembled from 
individual component parts and the resulting system is subject to 
authorization under Supplier's Declaration of Conformity, the 
assembler.
    (2) If the equipment by itself, or, a system is assembled from 
individual parts and the resulting system is subject to Supplier's 
Declaration of Conformity and that equipment or system is imported, the 
importer.
    (3) Retailers or original equipment manufacturers may enter into an 
agreement with the responsible party designated in paragraph (b)(1) or 
(b)(2) of this section to assume the responsibilities to ensure 
compliance of equipment and become the new responsible party.
    (4) If the radio frequency equipment is modified by any party not 
working under the authority of the responsible party, the party 
performing the modifications, if located within the U.S., or the 
importer, if the equipment is imported subsequent to the modifications, 
becomes the new responsible party.
    (c) If the end product or equipment is subject to both 
certification and Supplier's Declaration of Conformity (i.e., composite 
system), all the requirements of paragraphs (a) and (b) apply.
    (d) If, because of modifications performed subsequent to 
authorization, a new party becomes responsible for ensuring that a 
product complies with the technical standards and the new party does 
not obtain a new equipment authorization, the equipment shall be 
labeled, following the specifications in Sec.  2.925(d), with the 
following: ``This product has been modified by [insert name, address 
and telephone number or internet contact information of the party 
performing the modifications].''
    (e) In the case of transfer of control of equipment, as in the case 
of sale or merger of the responsible party, the new entity shall bear 
the responsibility of continued compliance of the equipment.


Sec.  2.1071  Cross Reference

    The general provisions of this subpart shall apply to equipment 
subject to Supplier's Declaration of Conformity.


Sec.  2.1074  Identification

    (a) Devices subject only to Supplier's Declaration of Conformity 
shall be uniquely identified by the party responsible for marketing or 
importing the equipment within the United States. However, the 
identification shall not be of a format which could be confused with 
the FCC Identifier required on certified equipment. The responsible 
party shall maintain adequate identification records to facilitate 
positive identification for each device.
    (b) Devices subject to authorization under Supplier's Declaration 
of Conformity may be labeled with the following logo on a voluntary 
basis as a visual indication that the product complies with the 
applicable FCC requirements. The use of the logo on the device does not 
alleviate the requirement to provide the compliance information 
required by Sec.  2.1077 of this subpart.


Sec.  2.1077  Compliance Information
