Small FCC/CE UpdateMarch 30, 2009
ED has given us a quick update on the FCC and CE status. For those of you who won’t know, FCC and CE are official certifications that a product has to pass before it can be sold. FCC for the U.S and CE for Europe.
Just phoned with the CE / FCC guys.
Testing does take two days, CE can be done with the CNC prototype, only for FCC the final unit is needed (by american law).
However, as the final case won’t change any of the stuff we need to test to pass, we can be sure that FCC will be fine when we have the CE, so as soon as the final unit is out, it needs about a week after testing to receive the licensing. So US guys might get the unit a bit later, but that’s the american law.
So, this issue doesn’t hold up the CE Testing.
