Energy Labeling Rule Effective on November 29th, 2019 in regards to 16 CFR Part 305

Originally issued in 1979, the FTC requires energy labeling for major consumer products to allow the consumer to be better informed about the products they are purchasing. In March 2019, the FTC published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking looking for feedback from the public about their suggested proposals. The proposed amendments looked to improve the Rule’s organization and clarity which had became cluttered over the years due to various amendments.

Transforming the 2.5GHz band starts April 27, 2020 in regards to 47 CFR Parts 1 and 27

The Federal Communications Commission (Commission or FCC) takes another step towards making more mid-band spectrum available for next generation wireless services benefiting all Americans. Specifically, the Commission transforms the regulatory framework governing the 2.5 GHz band, which is the single largest band of contiguous spectrum below 3 gigahertz.
Too much of this spectrum, which is prime spectrum for next generation mobile operations, including 5G, has not been active for more than twenty years. In order to move this spectrum into the hands of those who will provide service, including 5G, to Americans across the country, the Commission is replacing an outdated regulatory regime, with one that not only gives incumbent users more flexibility in how they use the spectrum, but also provides opportunities for additional entities to obtain access to unused 2.5 GHz spectrum.
In the Report and Order, the Commission takes steps to permit more flexible use of the 2.5 GHz band by current users and commercial entities to obtain unused 2.5 GHz spectrum to facilitate improved access to next generation wireless broadband, including 5G, for both educational and commercial uses.
