   (b) Any manufacturer of a transmitter to be used in this service may
   apply for certification for such transmitter following the
   certification procedure set forth in part 2 of the Commission's Rules
   and Regulations. Attention is also directed to part 1 of the
   Commission's Rules and Regulations which specifies the fees required
   when filing an application for certification.

   (c) An applicant for a low power auxiliary station may also apply for
   certification for an individual transmitter by following the
   certification procedure set forth in part 2 of the Commission's Rules
   and Regulations. The application for certification must be accompanied
   by the proper fees as prescribed in part 1 of the Commission's Rules
   and Regulations.

   (d) Low power auxiliary station equipment authorized to be used
   pursuant to an application accepted for filing prior to December 1,
   1977 may continue to be used by the licensee or its successors or
   assignees: Provided, however, If operation of such equipment causes
   harmful interference due to its failure to comply with the technical
   standards set forth in this subpart, the Commission may, at its
   discretion, require the licensee to take such corrective action as is
   necessary to eliminate the interference.

   (e) Each instrument of authority which permits operation of a low power
   auxiliary station using equipment which has not been certificated will
   specify the particular transmitting equipment which the licensee is
   authorized to use.

   (f) All transmitters marketed for use under this subpart shall be
   certificated by the Federal Communications Commission for this purpose.
   (Refer to subpart I of part 2 of the Commission's rules and
   regulations.)

   (g) No person shall manufacture, import, sell, lease, offer for sale or
   lease, or ship low power auxiliary stations that are capable of
   operating in the 700 MHz band (698-806 MHz). This prohibition does not
   apply to devices manufactured solely for export.

   (h) Any person who manufactures, sells, leases, or offers for sale or
   lease low power auxiliary stations, including wireless microphones,
   that are destined for non-U.S. markets and that are capable of
   operating in the 700 MHz band shall include labeling and make clear in
   all sales, marketing, and packaging materials, including online
   materials, relating to such devices that the devices cannot be operated
   in the U.S.

   (i) As of January 13, 2018, applications for certification shall no
   longer be accepted for low power auxiliary stations or wireless video
   assist devices that are capable of operating in the 600 MHz service
   band or the 600 MHz guard band, or for low power auxiliary stations
   that are capable of operating in the 600 MHz duplex gap unless the
   operations are limited to the 653-657 MHz segment.

   (j) As of October 13, 2018, no person shall manufacture, import, sell,
   lease, offer for sale or lease, or ship low power auxiliary stations or
   wireless video assist devices that are capable of operating in the 600
   MHz service band or the 600 MHz guard bands, or low power auxiliary
   stations that are capable of operating in the 600 MHz duplex gap unless
   the operations are limited to the 653-657 MHz segment. This prohibition
   does not apply to devices manufactured solely for export.

   (k) As of October 13, 2018, any person who manufacturers, sells,
   leases, or offer for sale or lease low power auxiliary stations or
   wireless video assist devices that are destined for non-U.S. markets
   and that are capable of operating in the 600 MHz service band or the
   600 MHz guard bands, or low power auxiliary stations that are capable
   of operating in the 600 MHz duplex gap unless such operations are
   limited to the 653-657 MHz segment, shall include labeling and make
   clear in all sales, marketing, and packaging materials, including
   online materials, relating to such devices that the devices cannot be
   operated in the United States.

   (l) Disclosure requirements for low power auxiliary stations and
   wireless video assist devices capable of operating in the 600 MHz
   service band. Any person who manufactures, sells, leases, or offers for
   sale or lease low power auxiliary stations or wireless video devices
   that are capable of operating in the 600 MHz service band 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 low power auxiliary station or wireless
   video assist device. 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 low power auxiliary station or
   wireless video assist device offered for sale or lease and clearly
   associated with the model to which it pertains.

   (2) If such persons offer such low power auxiliary stations or wireless
   video assist device 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 low power
   auxiliary station or wireless video assist device. 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 low power
   auxiliary stations or wireless video assist devices, 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 low
   power auxiliary stations or wireless video assist devices directly to
   the public).

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