Routine checking of hearing aids and external components of surgically implanted medical devices (Sec. 300.113)

Comment: None.

Discussion: New Sec. 300.113 is addressed in the Analysis of Comments and Changes section for subpart A in response to comments on Sec. 300.34(b).

Changes: We have added new Sec. 300.113 to cover the routine checking of hearing aids and external components of surgically implanted medical devices. The requirement for the routine checking of hearing aids has been removed from proposed Sec. 300.105 and included in new Sec. 300.113(a). The requirement for routine checking of an external component of a surgically implanted medical device has been added as new Sec. 300.113(b). The requirements for assistive technology devices and services remain in Sec. 300.105 and the heading has been changed to reflect this change. We have also included a reference to new Sec. 300.113(b) in new Sec. 300.34(b)(2).
