Publication Number: 316776 Rule Parts: 15B, 15C Publication Date: 04/12/2007
Keyword: User's Manual, FCC Warning Statements, User Information on Electronic Media (i.e. CD)

First Category: Radio Service Rules
Second Category: Part 15 General

Question:   Does the FCC allow placement of warning statements and other user information on electronic media (i.e., CD) enclosed with the product when sold to the consumer, instead of in the user's manual?

Answer:   Yes, the information provided to the consumer at the time of purchase may be in the user's manual or may be provided electronically (i.e., on CD). Review Part 15 of the FCC Rules (e.g., Sections 15.21 and 15.105) for the specific requirements for information that must be provided to the user of a Part 15 device.
