We’re honored to announce that HEXO+ has just reached a major milestone: FCC certification. As you may know, most countries have a certification process that ensures products with radio frequency functionalities (RF) do not interfere with other electronic devices. Although certifications vary by country, they typically must be attained before these products are sold and distributed.
In the United States, certification from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is essential. Created by an act of Congress, this independent government agency regulates interstate communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable throughout the United States and its territories.
For HEXO+, the FCC Declaration of Conformity–also known as the FCC label or the FCC mark–is the relevant certification.
Similar to the CE mark in Europe, this certification is used with electronic goods manufactured or sold in the United States. The certification process essentially involves testing a product’s electronic components to ensure any electromagnetic interference they generate does not interfere with other electronic devices and is within the limits approved by the FCC.
Earlier this month, several of our units completed the final FCC testing. We couldn’t be more stoked to announce–loud and clear–that HEXO+ is FCC certified.
Meeting this major milestone will enable us to soon begin shipping to the U.S. And as much as we’d like to crack open the champagne, we’re as busy as ever and eager to take flight.
Stay tuned–In coming blog posts we’ll share an update on our production efforts, delivery, and much more!
