The regulations further provide that ‘‘[s]uch designation shall be provided to the Commission and shall include a name or department designation, business address, telephone number, and, if available, TTY number, facsimile number, and Internet e-mail address.’’ Finally, the regulations require the Commission to make this information available to the public. Apart from requiring the provision of contact information directly to the Commission, the new regulations do not otherwise change the procedures for handling complaints alleging a violation PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of the Commission’s hearing aid compatibility rules.
