Any marking or certification of your fax machine to harmonised European “CE Mark” requirements for EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility), and for user safety according to the European LVD (Low Voltage Directive), ARE NOT indicative of approval for connection to public telecommunications lines in a country other than that in which the equipment is approved.

Brother advises that this product will not function correctly in a country other than that in which it was originally offered for sale, and does not offer any warranty in the event that this product is used on public telecommunication lines in a country other than that in which it is approved.
