I’m looking for new HAs and, when I find them, I’ll have quite a batch of old HAs in various states of functionality. I’m thinking of clearing them out by selling them on Ebay. However, what is the recommended way of complying with the FDA requirement that Ebay makes me post with my ad. Do you have buyers send some sort of form before you ship? If so, what does the form say? Or is there some other thing that you do?
What does “review the content of the brochure with you” require from the seller?
How much time is required to comply with “I am required to afford you time to read the brochure”? Or do you require that the seller sign something stating that you afforded them adequate time?
Here is what must be put into HA ads on Ebay:
According to the FDA, it is in your best health interest to obtain a professional medical evaluation before purchasing a hearing aid and you are encouraged to do so before bidding on this item. If you choose to not obtain a medical evaluation before purchasing this item, I am required by law to provide to you and obtain from you a signed written waiver of the medical evaluation, and I am required to provide to you a copy of the User Instruction Brochure for a hearing aid, review the contents of that brochure with you, and afford you time to read the brochure. You must provide to me either a signed statement from a physician or a signed waiver before I will deliver this item to you. Upon your request, I will also provide to you a copy of the User Instructional Brochure for the hearing aid or the name and address of the manufacturer or distributor from whom a User Instructional Brochure for the hearing aid can be obtained.
