H.R. 3154: E-Warranty Act of 2015

Title: E-Warranty Act of 2015

Introduced: Jul 22, 2015 (114th Congress)

Sponsor: Rep. Markwayne Mullin [R-OK2]

Status: Reported by Committee - Placed on the Union Calendar, Calendar No. 184.

Summary: (This measure has not been amended since it was introduced. The summary has been expanded because action occurred on the measure.) E-Warranty Act of 2015 (Sec. 3) Amends the Magnuson-Moss Warranty--Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act to require the Federal Trade Commission to revise its rules to allow manufacturers to satisfy requirements concerning the availability of written warranties on consumer products by making the terms accessible in a digital format on the manufacturer's Internet website. Requires the product, packaging, or product manual in the case of a warranty provided on a website in such manner to display to the consumer: (1) the website where the warranty terms can be obtained; and (2) a phone number, postal address, or other reasonable non-Internet based means of contacting the manufacturer to obtain and review such terms. Prohibits such Internet website warranties from satisfying any requirement that a warranty be made available prior to sale in a retail location, by catalog, or through door-to-door sales, unless the seller makes the warranty available, through electronic or other means, at the location of the sale before the purchase.
