Ceiling Fan Rated Outlet Box Question

Hello,

I am in the process of installing a ceiling fan but I am uncertain if the current outlet box is fan rated. The home was built around 2005 and the installation is in a bedroom. I have provided pictures to show if there are any signs that it may or may not be fan rated. Thank you!

Welcome to the forums.

It may be a fan rated box. It's not one I can recall seeing before.
It looks like it has two sheetrock screws holding the bracket up.
Try taking them out. See if they are long and go thru the box into framing.
Is the box plastic or metal ?
