FCC Proposes $590,380 Fine For Noncompliant RF Devices

The FCC has released a notice of apparent liability for forfeiture proposing a $590,380 fine against a company for marketing noncompliant radio frequency devices.

The NAL released in file no. EB-SED-17-00024115 said that Bear Down Brands LLC (d/b/a Pure Enrichment) "marketed 14 models of consumer-grade electronic personal hygiene and wellness devices that were apparently noncompliant because they lacked proper equipment authorization, user manual disclosures, and/or FCC labels. Even after becoming aware of the apparent violations, Pure Enrichment continued to market the 14 models while it took corrective measures. Pure Enrichment apparently achieved compliance for 13 of the 14 models as of February 15, 2018, but continues to market one noncompliant model that lacks the proper user manual disclosures and FCC labeling in apparent violation of the Commission's rules."
