§ 68.5 Waivers.
The Commission may, upon the application of any interested person,
initiate a proceeding to waive the requirements of § 68.4(a)(1) with
respect to new telephones, or telephones associated with a new
technology or service. The Commission shall not grant such a waiver
unless it determines, on the basis of evidence in the record of such
proceeding, that such telephones, or such technology or service, are in
the public interest, and that (a) compliance with the requirements of
§ 68.4(a)(1) is technologically infeasible, or (b) compliance with such
requirements would increase the costs of the telephones, or of the
technology or service, to such an extent that such telephones,
technology, or service could not be successfully marketed. In any
proceeding under this section to grant a waiver from the requirements
of § 68.4(a)(1), the Commission shall consider the effect on
hearing-impaired individuals of granting the waiver. The Commission
shall periodically review and determine the continuing need for any
waiver granted pursuant to this section.
