Liz & Eben, best of luck with the certifications! No need to respond to me but I hope you guys will consider the below idea or something creative.
Please see this page: http://www.am1000rangemaster.c...../kits.html
I will quote FCC"s response from it:
The kit does not require equipment authorization to be marketed (sold) but they would still need to comply with the limits set forth in corresponding sections of part 15. The responsibility of compliance lies on the user, or the person who assembles the parts together, not on the manufacturer.
I suspect UK/Eu have something similar?
Probably too late for this but I am still wondering if you can sell it in a `kit' form by leaving out some critical component *we* can solder on. This would a) give you more time for FCC/CE certification and b) weed out non-developers from the initial set of users. As it is, I fear supporting a large number of non-developers at this early stage will take up a significant portion of your time and slow down your response to developer questions. The "Pi does need some more "baking" before it can be presented to your target audience of school kids so slowing down non-developers is not such a bad thing (though there will be a lot of whining!). There is another reason for slowing things down: hopefully this will never happen but what if you discover a critical problem after shipping a couple hundred thousand 'Pis? Any recall at that point would be a total catastrophe.
But may be it too late and you just have to surrender to the tornado of demand!
