A fine of $1,000,000 US has been levied against Behringer, the well known discount gear manufacturer, for failing to comply with FCC Part 15 regulations. Link here.
The FCC found that Behringer intentionally placed products into distribution in the US without first complying with FCC rules. The suspect gear, which includes, preamps, microphones, and other recording equipment, even carried the FCC symbol in some cases.
The FCC said in its recently reported ruling, "Based on the facts and circumstances before us, including the egregious nature of Behringer's continued non-compliance, we conclude that Behringer is apparently liable for a forfeiture in the amount of one million dollars($1,000,000)."
