SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On July 2, 2008, the Commission received approval from OMB for a revision to public information collection 3060-0999, which relates to new and modified information collection requirements under §§ 20.19(h) and 20.19(i) of the Commission's hearing aid compatibility rules. The revision was necessitated by the adoption of reporting requirements applicable to manufacturers and service providers, as well as requirements that manufacturers and service providers post certain information on their Web sites regarding the hearing aid-compatible handsets they offer. As the Commission previously announced the OMB approval on July 21, 2008, 73 FR 42344, the above-referenced rule sections are effective.
