STATEMENT OF FCC

COMMISSIONERS MIKE O’RIELLY AND JESSICA ROSENWORCEL

ON ADVANCING THE USE OF E-LABELING

Washington, D.C. – Commissioners Mike O’Rielly and Jessica Rosenworcel issued the

following statement today:

“We commend Senators Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) and Deb Fischer (R-NE) for their

bipartisan efforts to advance the use of e-labeling.

Modernizing the display of FCC device

certification has real benefits.

For starters, more devices and new technologies can be designed

with innovation in mind, rather than regulatory labeling requirements. The FCC also has been

doing its part.

Thanks to Chairman Wheeler and the talented staff of our Office of Engineering

and Technology, the Commission is looking at ways to update our e-labeling policies.

We are

optimistic that by working together we can provide innovators more flexibility and speed the

delivery of new devices in the marketplace.”
