16 CFR 20.2 - Deception as to identity of rebuilder, remanufacturer, reconditioner or reliner.

§ 20.2 Deception as to identity of rebuilder, remanufacturer, reconditioner or reliner.
(a) It is unfair or deceptive to misrepresent the identity of the rebuilder, remanufacturer, reconditioner or reliner of an industry product.
(b) In connection with the sale or offering for sale of an industry product, if the identity of the original manufacturer of the product, or the identity of the manufacturer for which the product was originally made, is revealed and the product was rebuilt, remanufactured, reconditioned or relined by someone else, it is unfair or deceptive to fail to disclose such fact wherever the original manufacturer is identified in advertising and sales promotional literature concerning the product, on the container in which the product is packed, and on the product, in close conjunction with, and of the same permanency and conspicuousness as, the disclosure of previous use of the product described by this section. Examples of such disclosures include:
(1) Disclosure of the identity of the rebuilder:
Rebuilt by John Doe Co.
(2) Disclosure that the product was rebuilt by an independent rebuilder:
Rebuilt by an Independent Rebuilder.
(3) Disclosure that the product was rebuilt by someone other than the manufacturer so identified:
Rebuilt by other than XYZ Motors.
(4) Disclosure that the product was rebuilt for the identified manufacturer, if such is the case:
Rebuilt for XYZ Motors.
