About Radio Frequency Devices

Many electronic products are capable of emitting radio frequency energy (a type of electromagnetic energy). These products, known as "radio frequency devices" or "RF devices," range from telecommunications devices (such as pagers and cell phones) to household appliances (such as microwave ovens). RF devices must comply with requirements set forth by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to avoid interfering with telecommunications services, such as radio, television, and mobile broadband. In addition, some RF devices may require a license to operate, or may only be authorized for specific activities.

For more information about RF devices, including guidance on the safe and lawful operation of devices with licensing or authorization requirements, please refer to the FCC resources below:
