SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission is requesting emergency OMB processing of this information collection and has requested OMB approval by May 18, 2007. OMB Control Number: 3060–XXXX. Title: Section 15.117, Broadcast Receivers. Form No.: Not applicable. Type of Review: New collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit entities. Number of Respondents: 10,000 respondents; 100,000 responses. Estimated Time Per Response: 0.25 hours (15 minutes). Frequency of Response: One time reporting requirement. Obligation to Respond: Mandatory. Total Annual Burden: 25,000 hours. Total Annual Cost: None. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: An assurance of confidentiality is not offered because this information collection does not require the collection of personally identifiable information (PII) from individuals. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: Not applicable. Needs and Uses: The Commission is seeking emergency processing of this information collection by May 18, 2007. The Commission adopted on April 25, 2007, a Second Report and Order, In the Matter of Second Periodic Review of the Commission’s Rules and Policies Affecting the Conversion to Digital Television, MB Docket 03–15, FCC 07– 69. The DTV Act amended 47 U.S.C. Section 309(j)(14)(A) to establish a final date of February 17, 2009 set by Congress for the transition from analog to digital television service by full power television broadcasters. In a continuing effort to inform consumers of this impending deadline, the Commission will require sellers at the point-of-sale to alert consumers about analog-only televisions. Consumers using analog-only television equipment will not be able to receive an over-theair broadcast signal unless they get a digital TV or a box to convert the digital signals to analog or subscribe to pay TV service after February 17, 2009. The Commission adopted 47 CFR 15.117(i) which prohibits the manufacture or import of television receivers that do not contain a digital tuner after March VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:04 May 09, 2007 Jkt 211001 1, 2007. Because the rule does not prohibit sale of analog-only television equipment from inventory, the Commission decided it is necessary to require retailers and other sellers who choose to continue selling analog-only television equipment to display a sign or label disclosing that analog-only television equipment will not be able to receive over-the-air broadcasting after February 17, 2009. Therefore, the Commission adopted on April 25, 2007, a Second Report and Order, In the Matter of Second Periodic Review of the Commission’s Rules and Policies Affecting the Conversion to Digital Television, MB Docket 03–15, FCC 07– 69. This rulemaking adopted 47 CFR 15.117(k). 47 CFR 15.117(k) states that any person that displays or offers for sale or rent television receiving equipment that is not capable of receiving, decoding and tuning digital signals must place conspicuously and in close proximity to the television broadcast receivers a sign containing, in clear and conspicuous print, the Consumer Alert Disclosure. The text should be in a size of type large enough to be clear, conspicuous and readily legible, consistent with the dimensions of the equipment and the label. The information may be printed on a transparent material and affixed to the screen, if the receiver includes a display, in a manner that is removable by the consumer and does not obscure the picture, or, if the receiver does not include a display, in a prominent location on the device, such as on the top or front of the device, when displayed for sale, or the information in this format may be displayed separately immediately adjacent to each television broadcast receiver offered for sale and clearly associated with the analog-only model to which it pertains. This requirement would also apply to persons who offer for sale or rent television broadcast receivers via direct mail, catalog, or electronic means. The Consumer Alert Disclosure must contain the following text: ‘‘This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009, to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the Nation’s transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1–888– 225–5322 (TTY: 1–888–835–5322) or visit the Commission’s digital television website at: www.dtv.gov.’’ PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 26633 The Commission is requesting emergency OMB approval for the Consumer Alert Disclosure requirement to allow the Commission to implement this important requirement to alert and disclose to consumers information concerning analog-only television broadcast receivers.
