When I was writing manuals for fiber-optic test and measurement equipment, a Declaration of Conformity was also included. However, we didn't include this item in the manual itself. It had its own P/N and was put in the shipment. I made the engineers update this information.

The "DoC" is used to show that the equipment conforms to FCC standards and, if I remember correctly, CE regulations.

"Question: Does my computer equipment require approval by the FCC?
Answer: Computer equipment that is marketed exclusively for use in business and industrial environments is called Class A equipment and requires verification (self approval) by the manufacturer. Personal computer equipment marketed for use in residential environments is called Class B and requires either certification by the FCC or self-approval under the Declaration of Conformity process. You can obtain information regarding both of these processes from the Office of Engineering and Technology Application Filing web page. For more information see OET Bulletin No. 62 Understanding The FCC Regulations for Computers and other Digital Devices."
