  § 15.19   Labeling requirements.

   (a) In addition to the requirements in part 2 of this chapter, a device
   subject to certification, or Supplier's Declaration of Conformity shall
   be labeled 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 of this chapter, 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 complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules for use with cable
   television service.

   (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
   impracticable to label it with the statement specified under paragraph
   (a) of this section in a font that is four-point or larger, and the
   device does not have a display that can show electronic labeling, then
   the information required by this paragraph shall be placed in the user
   manual and must also either be placed on the device packaging or on a
   removable label attached to the device.

   (b)-(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 § 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.
