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.
optimistic that by working together we can provide innovators more flexibility and speed the
delivery of new devices in the marketplace.”
