Introductory Provisions


Nothing in these rules is intended to impose any duty or any standard of care or conduct on any public or private body, entity or person to initiate or undertake any search and rescue or related operation, to conduct any such operation in any particular manner, or to provide any form of monitoring of radio signals in any geographic area.


The distributor of electronic signaling devices may require that users of the devices execute a release or waiver form under which users absolve the distributor or liability based on a claim that the device failed to function successfully, but no such release shall apply with respect to wilful or wanton misconduct or to distribution of a device with actual knowledge that is fails to meet the specifications in Exhibit 1 of theses rules.


Distributors shall require users to report to the distributor, its agents or employes any activation, dropping, abuse, damage or impacts sustained by the devices.
