Unfair or deceptive practices, unethical conduct and unfair methods of competitionUsed or rebuilt products.

(1) A licensee may not represent, directly or indirectly, that any industry product or part thereof is new, unused, or rebuilt, if it is not.
(2) In the marketing of a hearing instrument which has been used, or which contains used parts, a licensee must fully and nondeceptively disclose that the product or its parts are used in all advertising and promotional literature relating to the product, on the container, box or package in which the product is packed or enclosed and, if the product has the appearance of being new, on the product itself. The required disclosure may be made by use of words such as "used," "secondhand," "repaired," or "rebuilt," whichever most accurately describes the product involved.
(3) A licensee may not misrepresent the identity of the rebuilder of a hearing instrument. If the rebuilding of a hearing instrument was done by other than the original manufacturer, a licensee must disclose this fact wherever the original manufacturer is identified.
