Sec. 15.19  Labelling requirements.
    (a) In addition to the requirements in part 2 of this chapter, a 
device subject to certification, or verification shall be labelled as 
follows:
    (1) Receivers associated with the operation of a licensed radio 
service, e.g., FM broadcast under part 73 of this chapter, land mobile 
operation under part 90, etc., shall bear the following statement in a 
conspicuous location on the device:
    This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is 
subject to the condition that this device does not cause harmful 
interference.
    (2) A stand-alone cable input selector switch, shall bear the 
following statement in a conspicuous location on the device:
    This device is verified to comply with part 15 of the FCC Rules for 
use with cable television service.
[[Page 753]]
    (3) All other devices shall bear the following statement in a 
conspicuous location on the device:
    This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is 
subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause 
harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference 
received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
    (4) Where a device is constructed in two or more sections connected 
by wires and marketed together, the statement specified under paragraph 
(a) of this section is required to be affixed only to the main control 
unit.
    (5) When the device is so small or for such use that it is not 
practicable to place the statement specified under paragraph (a) of this 
section on it, the information required by this paragraph shall be 
placed in a prominent location in the instruction manual or pamphlet 
supplied to the user or, alternatively, shall be placed on the container 
in which the device is marketed. However, the FCC identifier or the 
unique identifier, as appropriate, must be displayed on the device.
    (b) Products subject to authorization under a Declaration of 
Conformity shall be labelled as follows:
    (1) The label shall be located in a conspicuous location on the 
device and shall contain the unique identification described in Sec. 
2.1074 of this chapter and the following logo:
    (i) If the product is authorized based on testing of the product or 
system; or
[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TR09DE03.000
    (ii) If a personal computer is authorized based on assembly using 
separately authorized components, in accordance with Sec. 15.101(c)(2) 
or (c)(3), and the resulting product is not separately tested:
[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TR09DE03.001
    (2) Label text and information should be in a size of type large 
enough to be readily legible, consistent with the dimensions of the 
equipment and the label. However, the type size for the text is not 
required to be larger than eight point.
    (3) When the device is so small or for such use that it is not 
practicable to place the statement specified under paragraph (b)(1) of 
this section on it, such as for a CPU board or a plug-in circuit board 
peripheral device, the text associated with the logo may be placed in a 
prominent location in the instruction manual or pamphlet supplied to the 
user. However, the unique identification (trade name and model
[[Page 754]]
number) and the logo must be displayed on the device.
    (4) The label shall not be a stick-on, paper label. The label on 
these products shall be permanently affixed to the product and shall be 
readily visible to the purchaser at the time of purchase, as described 
in Sec. 2.925(d) of this chapter. ``Permanently affixed'' means that 
the label is etched, engraved, stamped, silkscreened, indelibly printed, 
or otherwise permanently marked on a permanently attached part of the 
equipment or on a nameplate of metal, plastic, or other material 
fastened to the equipment by welding, riveting, or a permanent adhesive. 
The label must be designed to last the expected lifetime of the 
equipment in the environment in which the equipment may be operated and 
must not be readily detachable.
    (c) [Reserved]
    (d) Consumer electronics TV receiving devices, including TV 
receivers, videocassette recorders, and similar devices, that 
incorporate features intended to be used with cable television service, 
but do not fully comply with the technical standards for cable ready 
equipment set forth in Sec. 15.118, shall not be marketed with 
terminology that describes the device as ``cable ready'' or ``cable 
compatible,'' or that otherwise conveys the impression that the device 
is fully compatible with cable service. Factual statements about the 
various features of a device that are intended for use with cable 
service or the quality of such features are acceptable so long as such 
statements do not imply that the device is fully compatible with cable 
service. Statements relating to product features are generally 
acceptable where they are limited to one or more specific features of a 
device, rather than the device as a whole. This requirement applies to 
consumer TV receivers, videocassette recorders and similar devices 
manufactured or imported for sale in this country on or after October 
31, 1994.
