The receive volume control requirement added in section 6.1 of Part V will be effective on January 1st, 2000. From that day on, all telephones, as described therein, manufactured for the Canadian market (including proprietary telephones which have been certified as components or as part of a package) shall comply with these requirements. The exemptions of wireless and secure telephones continues to be applied to the entire Part V requirements.
