(c) In addition to the information required by § 1.1307(b) and § 2.1033(c) of this chapter, applicants for certification required by this section shall submit any additional equipment test data necessary to demonstrate compliance with pertinent standards for transmitter performance prescribed in § 25.138, § 25.202(f), § 25.204, § 25.209, and § 25.216 and shall submit the statements required by § 2.1093(c) of this chapter.
