Hard Drives (HDD) will not have IC IDs unless they are wireless. Drives installed in laptops or desktops produce no intentional wireless emissions so they do not need to be approved by Industry Canada and thus will not get an IC ID and will not appear on the Industry Canada Radio Equipment List.
Emission designators are codes between 3 and 9 characters which describe a wireless signal.
In codes with at least 7 characters, the first four characters represent the bandwidth of the signal and the remaining characters describe the signal methods, modulation type used, and class of data being transferred. In older 3 character emission designators the bandwidth is not included in the code.
You can decode an emission designator and find some additional details with this simple form:
Some companies, especially companies known for counterfeit goods may forge an IC ID or Industry Canada Radio Equipment approval. If you are looking to check the validity of an IC ID, you can use the site at https://industrycanada.co to check IC ID validity.
The Industry Canada IC ID is comprised of two parts, the first part is a manufacturer’s identifier. This is a short alphanumeric identifier that is unique to each manufacturer of a device. This part of the identifier can contain numbers and letters.
The second part of the IC ID is a manufacturer chosen model identifier. This part of the IC ID can contain numbers, letters, and hyphens. Older IC IDs (pre-1995) may also contain parentheses and periods, but these are no longer acceptable characters for IC Identifiers.
