Unauthorized Wireless Equipment Sold on the Internet and in Publications

Wireless equipment missing FCC ID Registration may be illegally operating in the US, depending on the frequency it uses. Bluetooth, WiFi and many other devices all need to have valid FCC ID registrations before they are marketed for sale in the USA. Marketing a wireless device without proper FCC certification may result in fines.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) receives many complaints about alleged illegal (non-FCC certified) equipment being offered for sale on the Internet or in publications. The FCC is monitoring this situation carefully and requests your assistance. If you have a complaint or any information about illegal or uncertified equipment being offered for sale, please forward it to the FCC. Useful information includes:

  • an original advertisement or web address where the illegal equipment is being advertised or offered for sale, highlighting the types of equipment about which the allegations are being made;
  • the name of any web auction site selling the equipment, the exact item number, and auction opening and closing dates;
  • name and address of the individual or business offering the item(s) for sale;
  • your name and telephone number in the event follow-up is necessary. We will keep this information private;
  • specifically, why you think the equipment is not in compliance with FCC rules; and
  • number of pieces or types of equipment about which the allegations are being made (one piece, five pieces, how many models, etc.).

Filing a complaint

You have multiple options for filing a complaint with the FCC:

  • File a complaint online
  • By phone: 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322); TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC (1-888-835-5322); ASL: 1-844-432-2275
  • By mail (please include your name, address, contact information and as much detail about your complaint as possible):

Where is my Drone Serial Number? Can I use the FCC ID?

The FCC ID is a non-unique code that is the same across all drones of the same model. The FCC ID on a drone may not be used for FAA registration because it is not unique to the drone.

Drone serial numbers are unique for every drone manufactured. With the serial number (and the proper warrants) a drone could be traced from the manufacturer down the supply chain eventually to the end purchaser. For this purpose, serial numbers on drones need to be unique.

If your drone does not have a serial number and you are trying to FAA register it, you should first check to be sure FAA registration is required of you. If your drone weighs less than 250 grams ( 1/2 LB ), FAA registration is not currently required. Keep in mind, though, you may still be required to register as a drone operator with the FAA.

What is the IC ID on a router?

An IC ID (sometimes just IC) on a wireless router is the regulatory certification number used to certify the router complies to wireless emissions standards in Canada. Using the IC ID, you can lookup the wireless frequency the router uses (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz), the radiation you may be absorbing by using the wireless router in your home, and other technical information about the device. IC IDs must be on all routers and other wireless transmitting devices certifying they are approved for use in Canada.

Are “IC ID” / IC Numbers Unique?

Industry Canada ID (IC ID / IC) numbers are unique to a device model, but not to each device.

For example, A company may produce two types of laptops with significant variation in each laptop. They give one laptop the model APPLE 1 and the other APPLE 2. The APPLE 1 computer will get the IC ID: 579 APPLE1 and the APPLE 2 computer will get the IC ID: 579 APPLE2. Every model of APPLE 1 and APPLE 2 will get the same IC ID regardless if 1 device is produced or 1,000 are produced.

How To Search an IC ID

Finding details on a wireless device with an IC ID is fairly simple. First, you will need to locate the label on the product. IC IDs may be printed on the label in the battery compartment and perhaps under the battery, many models list just “IC” rather than “IC ID”.

Once you have the IC ID, using the following form or at this IC Search Page
The device details page will include information such as “Approved Operating Frequencies” in MHz
