ANSI ASC C63® Recognizes
Member Contributions

At the Telecommunications Certification Body Council (TCBC) meeting in Baltimore the week of April 26, 2010, there was an opportunity to present the ANSI ASC C63® membership certificate to the TCBC. This organization provides significant contribution via its primary representative on C63® – Art Wall, a consultant with his own company, Radio Regulatory Consultants. At a break in the TCBC meeting, the Vice Chairman of C63® – Dan Hoolihan of Hoolihan EMC Consulting – presented the certificate to the secretary of the TCBC. See the photo at right for the short ceremony.
     ANSI ASC C63® handed out similar certificates to its members at its meeting on 22 April 2010 in Piscataway, New Jersey, in conjunction with its meeting series held at IEEE headquarters.
     Included with this article are a few photos showing members receiving their certificates.


The Telecommunication Certification Body Council’s Workshop was held in Baltimore, Maryland on April 26-28, 2010. During the course of the Workshop, Art Wall gave a summary presentation on two ANSI ASC C63® standards; C63.10 (Unlicensed Wireless Devices) and C63.26 (Licensed Wireless Devices). In front of 100 attendees, the Vice-Chair of C63®, Dan Hoolihan (left), presented the 2010 Membership Certificate for the TCB Council to Chris Harvey (center), the Executive Director of the TCB Council, as Art Wall (right), the Chairman of the Working Group that developed C63.10, looks on approvingly. Mr. Hoolihan thanked the TCB Council for their support and encouraged their continued participation in the development of the next edition of C63.10 and the first edition of C63.26. Telecommunication Certification Bodies are doing about 98% of the Certifications for FCC Compliance in the USA.
