FCC Steps up enforcement

FCC fines LED light suppliers for rule violations. Fines range from $15,000 to $61,000.

In an article posted on Digital Signage Today, it’s reported that the FCC is significantly stepping up enforcement of the radio equipment rules. The article quotes Commissioner Michael O'Reilly as stating that the FCC intends to pursue vigorous enforcement and suggests substantially increasing fines on violators.

While the FCC has been relaxing the requirements, oversight and complexities of the authorization methods for products, they still take violations of the rules very seriously. It is reported that the FCC has recently targeted LED light suppliers and found multiple violations of the rules. Violations that range from improper labeling to marketing and selling without first applying proper FCC equipment authorizations.
