Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will detail the functions of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB). It will breakdown the contents of the FCC Form 740 and offer guidance for effectively completing the form.

Why Should You Attend:

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) enforces the standards for broadcast decency and regulates the sources of electromagnetic noise. This webinar will focus on the latter, specifically the importation of goods that emit radio frequency pollution. Electrical and electronic products may interfere with other electronic products by producing electromagnetic field waves that travel through space and cause unwanted interference.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – its function
  • Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB) – its function
  • Identify electronic products subject to “noise pollution” oversight
  • Importer responsibilities
  • FCC Form 740 – breakdown and instruction on how to complete the form
  • Kinds of digital consumer products that get exempted

Who Will Benefit:

This training program will be beneficial for importers of electronic products subject to FCC oversight. This includes:

  • Manufacturers
  • Distributors
  • Import Analysts
  • Entry Writers

Instructor Profile:

Alvaro Gutierrez, MBA, LCB, is an international trade compliance consultant with over 18 years of expertise in exporting and importing goods into the United States and globally. He is a licensed CHB since 2000 with over 12 years of CHB experience and 6 years in trade compliance.

Topic Background:

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is a Federal agency of the U.S. Government; it is responsible for the management of the radio spectrum in the United States. The FCC like the EPA (Environment Protection Agency) protects against pollution but the FCC has jurisdiction over “radio and broadcast pollution.”

Like most government forms, FCC 740 (Statement Regarding the Importation of Radio Frequency Devices Capable of Causing Harmful Interference) comes with a stern warning to the importer:

Warning: Any person who knowingly makes a false declaration may be fined not more than $250,000 or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 1001.

The FCC requires that any product that is covered by FCC regulations undergo “equipment authorization procedure”. It is illegal to import, sell, or lease covered equipment that has not undergone the required equipment authorization procedure. Additionally, operators must cease to use equipment that causes interference upon notification by the FCC. The FCC does have the ability to levy fines, impose seizures, and even jail offenders. The FCC frequently targets end-users with fines to bring pressure to bear on retailers.
