  • As per TIA/EIA/TSB168 document, Approved terminal equipment and approved protective circuitry shall prominently display the following information using the format shown below:

    Label Content and Format

    Approved terminal equipment and approved protective circuitry shall prominently display the following information using the format shown below:

    • Responsible party.

    • Product identification.

    • Equipment Code.

    • Ringer Equivalence.

    • Ringer Type.

    • Indication that the product meets the requirements of 47 CFR Part 68.

    The information required by the first five items shall correspond to the records in the ACTA database of approved equipment.

    The required information shall be encoded in the following format:

    US: AAAEQ##TXXX

    Where:

    US: Is a fixed field that indicates the equipment meets all requirements of 47 CFR Part 68 (including the requirements published by ACTA).

    AAA: Is the responsible party’s Grantee Code obtained previously from the FCC’s Common Carrier Bureau or currently from ACTA.

    EQ: Is an Equipment Code indicating to the Service Provider any special signal handling or billing requirements. The Equipment codes are listed in Annex A (normative).

    ##: Is the Ringer Equivalence Number without a decimal point (e.g. REN of 1.0 = 10, REN of 0.3 = 03). In the case of a "Z" ringer, ZZ shall appear. In the case of approved equipment without a network interface and equipment not connecting to circuits with analog ringing supplied then "NA" shall appear.

    T: Is the ringer type letter associated with the Ringer Equivalence Number, in accordance with the technical requirements. In the case of approved equipment without a network interface and equipment not connecting to circuits with analog ringing supplied, the letter "N" shall appear.

    XXX: Is a product identifier, unique when combined with the responsible party’s Grantee Code, of at least one and up to nine alphanumeric characters (including one or more dashes (-) if desired. A dash shall not appear as the first or last character nor shall the identifier consist entirely of dashes). The responsible party shall define this identifier.

Label Physical Characteristics

The information required above shall be permanently affixed and legible without magnification. It may be etched, engraved, stamped, indelibly printed or otherwise permanently marked. Alternatively, the required information may be permanently marked on a nameplate of metal, plastic or other material fastened to the enclosure by welding, riveting or with a permanent adhesive. Such a nameplate shall be able to last for the expected lifetime of the equipment and shall not be readily detachable.

Labeling Continuity and Changes

The labeling content and format requirements in effect when a product was approved shall be effective for the life of the product. The labeling content and format requirements in effect at approval shall also continue to be effective for modified products. However, the responsible party shall have the option of conforming a product's labeling to current content and format requirements at any time.

Other Label Requirements

The label shall be placed in one of the following locations in a location where it can be found after installation:

• on an outside surface;

• inside a readily available access door or panel;

• on another readily accessible surface.

For example, the label should not be placed on the rear of a permanently wall-mounted device in a manner such that it is not readily accessible.

Notes:

1.   For imported proprietary telephones, consoles, modems and other separate adjuncts listed in the approval "envelope" of a specified system, importers must provide U. S. Customs inspectors with a copy of the Telecommunication Certification Body certificate or Supplier’s Declaration of Conformity that lists these items.

2.   The FCC has additional marking requirements for telephones as specified in 47 CFR § 68.300(b). These requirements apply both to hearing-aid compatible and non-hearing aid-compatible telephones.
