Question: What is a FCC ID Number?

Answer: It's a fifteen digit number, consisting of the letters of the alphabet and the numbers 0 thru 9.

The first three digits are the "code" assigned by the FCC ( Federal Communications Commission - United States Government Agency) to a product for which testing has been done.

This testing is to assure the consumer that it meets minimum electronic standards. The "standards" are various, depending on the device we are referring to, i.e. modems, monitors, video cards, etc., etc.

It can help you identify the real manufacturer of an item. To do a search for the manufacturer go here:

On this page enter the first three digits to find out who made this device, in the first "box", labeled "Grantee Code".

In the second "box", labeled Equipment Product Code" enter the complete, number again. This will do an exact search for just this one item. The entry for the second "box" is optional, the only required entry is the "Grantee Code".
