   (k) Disclosure requirements for unlicensed wireless microphones capable
   of operating in the 600 MHz service band. Any person who manufactures,
   sells, leases, or offers for sale or lease, unlicensed wireless
   microphones that are capable of operating in the 600 MHz service band,
   as defined in this part, on or after July 13, 2017, is subject to the
   following disclosure requirements:

   (1) Such persons must display the consumer disclosure text, as
   specified by the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, at the point
   of sale or lease of each such unlicensed wireless microphone. The text
   must be displayed in a clear, conspicuous, and readily legible manner.
   One way to fulfill the requirement in this section is to display the
   consumer disclosure text in a prominent manner on the product box by
   using a label (either printed onto the box or otherwise affixed to the
   box), a sticker, or other means. Another way to fulfill this
   requirement is to display the text immediately adjacent to each
   unlicensed wireless microphone offered for sale or lease and clearly
   associated with the model to which it pertains.

   (2) If such persons offer such unlicensed wireless microphones via
   direct mail, catalog, or electronic means, they shall prominently
   display the consumer disclosure text in close proximity to the images
   and descriptions of each such unlicensed wireless microphone. The text
   should be in a size large enough to be clear, conspicuous, and readily
   legible, consistent with the dimensions of the advertisement or
   description.

   (3) If such persons have Web sites pertaining to these unlicensed
   wireless microphones, the consumer disclosure text must be displayed
   there in a clear, conspicuous, and readily legible manner (even in the
   event such persons do not sell unlicensed wireless microphones directly
   to the public).

   (4) The consumer disclosure text described in paragraph (k)(1) of this
   section is set forth in Figure 1 to this paragraph.
