16 CFR Parts 701, 702: Rule Governing Disclosure of Written Consumer Product Warranty Terms and Conditions; Rule Governing Pre Sale Availability of Written Warranty Terms; FTC File No. P044403
Is the amendment to Magnuson Moss intended to apply to all consumer warranties required by other federal laws, such as the emissions warranties required under the Clean Air Act? The regulations applicable to small engines and non-road equipment under the authority of the Clean Air act (40 CFR 1054.120) require that emissions warranties be "described" in the owner's manual. The final regulations should clarify whether the warranties required under all federal statutory programs, including the Clean Air Act, can be made according to this rule.
