Scope of Wireless License-Exempt Radio Device Testing

RSS-310 provides requirements for license-exempt radio apparatus. These devices are used for radiocommunication, other than broadcasting, which is exempt from certification. The manufacturer of Category II equipment is subjected to this RSS standard to ensure that compliance is demonstrated and results are compiled within a report.

Many of the emission conditions, wireless compliance, and RSS certification requirements must comply with RSS-Gen. The RSS-310 wireless standard test method lists technical standards about:

  • Category II receiver requirements
  • Underground and tunnel radios
  • Cable locating equipment
  • AC wire carrier current devices
  • Transmitters with input power of 6 nanowatts or less
  • 0 – 9 kHz and Infra-red frequencies

Tests are performed and reports are prepared by RSS-Gen provisions. This excludes provisions applicable only to the certification of Category I equipment. The wireless RSS-310 test report is retained by the manufacturer whose name appears on the equipment label for as long as the model is marketed in Canada.

The manufacturer or the test apparatus must ensure that each unit of the equipment model bears a permanent label on which displays the following information:

  • Manufacturer’s Name or Brand Name
    • Model: (Model Number)
  • Canada 310
