The Consumer and Government Affairs Bureau of the Federal Communications Commission released the 2008 Hearing Aid Compatibility Report and Order on February 28, 2008. The obligations placed on wireless handset manufacturers and public mobile service providers became effective on June 6, 2008. Specifically, the Commission amended section 68.418 of the hearing aid compatibility rules, 47 C.F.R. § 68.418, to require that manufacturers and service providers designate and identify one or more agents upon whom service may be made of all notices, inquiries, orders, decisions, and other pronouncements of the Commission in any matter before the Commission. The regulations further provide that … designation shall be provided to the Commission and shall include a name or department designation, business address, telephone number, and, if available, TTY number, facsimile number, and Internet e-mail address.” Finally, the regulations require the Commission to make this information available to the public. The FCC will post the information online. Learn more details at the FCCwebsite.
