Subject: FCC Issues Temporary Waiver for CVAA Compliance by E-readers to
Allow Further Agency Review
On October 22, 2013, the FCC's Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau
announced that the FCC needs more time to review a petition requesting a
waiver from the FCC's advanced communications accessibility requirements for
certain e-reader devices. The petition was filed by a Coalition of E-Reader
Manufacturers. The Bureau granted the temporary waiver until January 28,
2014. During this temporary waiver period, the FCC will evaluate the merits
of the petition and decide whether to grant or deny the waiver request.
