The Federal Communications Commission (United States of America) informed testing laboratories and telecommunication certification bodies about missing information on antenna gain in provided applications and test reports.

Starting from August 25, 2022, all part 15 applications must contain adequate information on the maximum antenna gain for the operational frequency band as well as provide information on derivation of antenna gain. Relevant data is to be in a manufacturer data sheet or a measurement report. The updated requirements may affect FCC approval status in case of insufficient information.
