CEA Commends Senators for Introduction of E-LABEL Act

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ARLINGTON, Va., July 10 -- The Consumer Electronics Association issued the following news release: The following statement can be attributed to Veronica O'Connell, vice president of government and political affairs, Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), regarding the introduction of the E-LABEL Act: "CEA welcomes the E-LABEL Act, introduced today by Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) and Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.). The Federal Communications Commission's existing physical labeling requirements are burdensome, costly and present logistical challenges for consumer electronics manufacturers. The E-LABEL Act would give device manufacturers the option to present on a wireless device's display or screen the markings and identifiers normally required to be fixed to the device's casing.

"This is a commonsense approach for the digital age. E-labeling would be cost-effective, in keeping with the consumer electronics industry's important ongoing environmental sustainability efforts, and a beneficial and innovative use of today's technology. We hope that the Senate will consider this important legislation, and we thank Senators Fischer and Rockefeller for their leadership on this issue."
