Notices
This product, which contains encryption software developed in the United States, is
controlled by the United States Export Administration Regulations and may not be
exported or re-exported to any country to which the United States embargoes goods. As
of April 2007 the following countries were subject to embargo: Cuba, Iran, North Korea,
Sudan, and Syria.
Restrictions on Wireless Devices
The wireless transceiver included in this product conforms to wireless regulations in the
country of sale and is not for use in other countries (products purchased in the EU or
EFTA can be used anywhere within the EU and EFTA). Nikon does not accept liability for
use in other countries. Users who are unsure as to the original country of sale should
consult with their local Nikon service center or Nikon-authorized service representative.
This restriction applies to wireless operation only and not to any other use of the
product.
Notice for customers in the U.S.A. and Canada
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Industry of Canada (IC)
Declaration of Conformity
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC rules and RSS-Gen of IC rules. Operation is
subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause
undesired operation of this device.
FCC/IC RF Exposure Statement
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated
with using low power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that these low power
wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power wireless devices emit low levels of radio
frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used. Whereas high levels of
RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that does not
produce heating effects causes no known adverse health effects. Many studies of lowlevel RF exposures have not found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested
that some biological effects might occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by
additional research. Wireless LAN Module (GC-131) has been tested and found to
comply with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled equipment
and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65
and RSS-102 of the IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules. Please refer to the SAR test
report that was uploaded at FCC website.
This device should not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna
or transmitter.
