FCC approvals delayed due to EAS system shutdown
As of Thursday, January 3rd, 2019, the FCC EAS (Equipment Authorization System) has been shutdown as per the following public notice:
In the event of a continued partial lapse in federal government funding, the Commission will suspend most operations in the middle of the day on Thursday, January 3, 2019. [Many of the] Commission electronic filing and database systems will be unavailable to the public [as of mid-day on Thursday January 3rd, 2019] until normal agency operations resume.
What this means is that the EAS used by Telecommunications Certification Bodies (TCB) will be offline until Government operations resume. Rest assured that Nemko continues to review FCC applications and will be ready to file with the FCC as soon as the system is back online.
