Employee Update

Rich Fabina Wishing Richard Fabina an Enjoyable and Blessed Retirement

The ACB family wishes to thank Richard Fabina for his enduring support for our customers and colleagues. Rich came to us after a successful career at the Federal Communications Commission where he left after 31 years and ended his tenure as Chief of the Equipment Authorizations Branch. Rich's advice, wisdom and perspective helped many during his years in public service and in the private industry.   

At the FCC, he was active during the development of the TCB program and helped launch this successful activity which has brought many devices to the market that have markedly changed our lives.  

During his work with ACB, he reviewed many projects for compliance with the FCC and Industry Canada requirements, assisting our technology clients to get their products to market. He also lent a unique perspective to our team, based on his years at the FCC. Rich was always the go-to guy when we needed to sort out a thorny compliance issue.

We hope he and his wife Jerri enjoy their much-deserved retirement, which will include travel and spending time with their family.  

God bless and God speed.

EMC UK 2014

Michael D.Michael Derby, Director of ACB EU, will be presenting at the EMC UK 2014 Technical Workshops. His presentation will discuss "Notified Body View of Test Reports." The discussion centres around the general topic of test report content and validity for the Notified Body and the manufacturer. The presentation directly focuses on the usefulness and meaning of the test report and also challenges the verification of "real" versus potentially questionable test results. In a global market, with many players, it is important to understand what your test report means to you.
