New standard RSS-247 has been published on May 28, 2015 and effect immediately. RSS-247 replaces annexes 8 and 9 of RSS-210 for devices operating on 2.4GHz and 5GHz band such as FHSS, DTS and U-NII devices.
Regarding the transition period for this new standard implement please refer to following guidance:
If a CB has issued a certificate to RSS-210 before the date of publication of RSS-247, nothing needs to be changed and it can be submitted as is and the CB would still choose RSS-210 in the application.
If a test report was issued to RSS-210 and the CB is issuing a certificate after the date of publication of RSS-247, the certificate shall indicate RSS-247 and the CB shall choose RSS-247 in the application. IC will accept test reports performed to RSS-210 for a period of three months after the publication of RSS-247. This means that after August 28, 2015, IC will only be accepting test reports performed to RSS-247. IC do accept test reports up to one year old and this means that after August 28, they can still accept a test report performed to RSS-210 but it will only be accepted if it is supplemented with a partial test report to cover any missing requirement in RSS-247.
