'Correction: FCC Labeling?'

I decided to look it up again, sure enough, I misremembered one part
of this:

"Authorized" means that you've met the requirements for sale.  Duh.
I forgot that.

Effective August 19, 1996, you have two choices for authorization
FOR CLASS B DEVICES.  One is to use an accredited lab to make the
measurements, and you can then prepare a Declaration of Conformity,
and use that form of the label.  You are authorized immediately.
This does not require that the FCC be "in the loop" at all- no filing
fee and no delay.

For Class A, or optionally for class B, you still file your test
results with the FCC, pay the filing fee, and wait for a
certification from them.  Then you use the Certified form of the
label, which includes a certificate number.

And THAT's only for the US.  For the EU, there a whole 'nother set of
requirements.  And THAT's only for Europe...

Ok, let's say that I'm a hobbyist who wants to make 20-30 devices to be sold to
technicions who are not close friends.  Perhaps over the web, or word of mouth.
I have a sales tax licence, and am running a computer consulting business, so I
would charge tax if I sold it in my state.

Do I need to certify these devices?  If so, how much, typically, would I need to
fork out to certify in the US (let's say a simple device with one mode of
operation, no intentional radio emissions)?

How much typically to certify for CE?

And, lastly, if it hooked up to the mains, do I have to have UL certification,
and generally how much does that cost?  I suppose I'll use a wall wart for the
majority, but if I make a light dimmer, then I can't use that shortcut.

I hope these aren't too involved to answer...  I know the actuall processes are
rather long and involved.

probably the easy way to avoid all this is make it a kit.
Shouldn't cause problems because it would be the responsibility of the
individual building the kit (a good disclaimer is needed)
