FCC Hearing-Aid Compatibility (HAC) Regulations for
Wireless Devices
 Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
On July 10, 2003, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
Report and Order in WT Docket 01- 09 modified the exception of wireless
phones under the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 (HAC Act) to require
digital wireless phones be compatible with hearing-aid. The intent of the
HAC Act is to ensure reasonable access to telecommunications services
for persons with hearing disabilities. While some wireless phones are used
near some hearing devices (hearing aid and cochlear implants), users may
detect a buzzing, humming, or whining noise. Some hearing devices are
more immune than others to this interference noise, and phones also vary in
the amount of interference they generate. The wireless telephone industry
has developed a rating system for wireless phones, to assist hearing device
users find phones that may be compatible with their hearing devices. Not
all phones have been rated. Phones that are rated have the rating on their
box or a label located on the box. The ratings are not guarantees. Results
will vary depending on the user’s hearing device and hearing loss. If your
hearing device happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be
able to use a rated phone successfully. Trying out the phone with your
hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your personal needs.
 Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
 Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which
the receiver is connected.
 Consult the dealer or an experienced radio or television technician
for help.
FCC Caution: Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the
party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate
this equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject
to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
SAR Information
M-Ratings: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC
requirements and are likely to generate less
interference to hearing devices than phones that
are not rated. M4 is the better/higher of the two
ratings. Your device is rated M4.
T-Ratings: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC
requirements and are likely to be more usable with
a hearing aid’s telecoil than phones that are not rated.
T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. Your device is rated T3.
Please power off the Bluetooth® function while using hearing aid devices
with your ALCATEL A995L.
Hearing devices may also be rated. Your hearing device manufacturer or
hearing health professional may help you find this rating. Higher ratings
mean that the hearing device is relatively immune to interference noise.
The hearing aid and wireless phone rating values are then added together. A
sum of 5 is considered acceptable for normal use. A sum of 6 is considered
for better use. A sum of 8 is considered for best use. In the above example,
if a hearing aid meets the M2 level rating and the wireless phone meets the
M3 level rating, the sum of the two values equal M5. This should provide
the hearing aid user with “normal usage” while using their hearing aid with
the particular wireless phone. “Normal usage” in this context is defined as
a signal quality that is acceptable for normal operation.
This methodology applies equally for T ratings. The M mark is intended to
be synonymous with the U mark. The T mark is intended to be synonymous
with the UT mark. The M and T marks are recommended by the Alliance
for Telecommunications Industries Solutions (ATIS). The U and UT marks
are referenced in Section 20.19 of the FCC Rules. The HAC rating and
measurement procedure are described in the American National Standards
Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard.

EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES. For body worn operation, this phone has
been tested and meets the FCC RF exposure guidelines when used with the
TCT Mobile Limited. Accessories supplied or designated for this product.
Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with the FCC RF
exposure guidelines.
Your wireless mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed
and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio
frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of
the U.S. Government. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines
and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The
guidelines are based on the safety standards previously set by both U.S. and
international standards bodies:
 A merican National Standards Institute (ANSI) IEEE. C95.1-1992 .
 N
ational Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP).
Report 86. 1986.
 International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
(ICNIRP) 1996.
 M
inistry of Health (Canada), Safety Code 6. The standards include a
substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phone employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit
set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg*.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model device
with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF
exposure guidelines. SAR information on this model device is on file with the
FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of https://fjallfoss. after searching on FCC ID:
RAD472 Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be

* In the U.S. and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phone used by the public
is 1.6 Watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard
incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for
the public and to account for any variations in usage.
Normal condition only to ensure the radiative performance and safety of the
interference. As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are
advised that for satisfactory operation of the equipment and for the safety of
personnel, it is recommended that no part of the human body be allowed to
come too close to the antenna during operation of the equipment.
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that a
minimum separation of 15 cm (6 inches) be maintained between a
handheld wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential interference
with the pacemaker. These recommendations are consistent with the
independent research by and recommendations of Wireless Technology
Persons with pacemakers:
Body-worn Operation
This device was tested for typical body-worn operations. To comply with
RF exposure requirements, a minimum separation distance of 1 cm must
be maintained between the user’s body and the handset, including the
antenna. Third-party belt-clips, holsters, and similar accessories used
by this device should not contain any metallic components. Body-worn
accessories that do not meet these requirements may not comply with RF
exposure requirements and should be avoided.
Use only the supplied or an approved antenna. Unauthorized antennas,
modifications, or attachments could impair call quality, damage the phone,
or result in violation of regulations. Do not use the phone with a damaged
antenna. If a damaged antenna comes into contact with the skin, a minor
burn may result. Please contact your local dealer for replacement antenna.
 S hould ALWAYS keep the phone more than 15 cm (6 inches) from their
pacemaker when the phone is turned ON.
 S hould not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
 S hould use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential
for interference. If you have any reason to suspect that interference is
taking place, turn the phone OFF immediately.
Hearing aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In the
event of such interference, you may want to consult your service provider,
or call the customer service line to discuss alternatives.
