I have been tasked by my current employer to look into the costs of self certifying. With past companies I have worked for, all of the tests were at a 3rd party lab. The closest thing I have seen to self certifying is when I worked at a company that had a makeshift anechoic chamber layered with copper tape. This was more to get a sense of the radiation coming from the unit. And to redesign if it was obviously high levels.
I have done a lot of searching and I can't seem to find a good guide or others that self certify for emissions. Has anybody gone through the process of self certifying? If so, where did you learn what kind of equipment to purchase and the procedure? My gut tells me it probably isn't worth self certifying but I have to do my due diligence in researching this possibility for my employer.
These links were useful to get my feet wet on the topic but I could not find a great lead:
FCC and CE Testing / Failure Resolution (most helpful)
The products to be certified are small benchtop units and are unintentional radiators. In my mind, I just need an anechoic chamber (probably not a large one), a calibrated spectrum analyzer (expensive but we would rent it), and a receiving antennae. But again, not an expert here. Just trying to understand the self certifying process.
