Peavey Pays $225,000 for Marketing Unauthorized Devices

Peavey Electronics Corporation of Meridian, MS has entered into a consent decree with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), following an investigation into the company’s compliance with FCC rules pertaining to the marketing of electronic devices.

According to a Consent Decree issued in April 2014, a 2011 investigation by the Commission’s Spectrum Enforcement Division determined that certain digital electronic devices manufactured and/or marketed by Peavey did not include labeling consistent with FCC requirements, and that user manuals accompanying some devices did not include required consumer disclosure statements.

As part of a negotiated settlement with the Commission, Peavey has agreed to make a voluntary contribution of $225,000 to the U.S. Treasury. In addition, the company agreed to develop and implement a plan to ensure future compliance with the FCC’s equipment marketing requirements and to establish a compliance training program for employees. Finally, Peavey will be required to file regular compliance reports with the Commission over the next three years.
