Year 2000 Compliant

Brother is addressing the Year 2000 related issues for all Brother FAX/MFC and multi-functioncenters. Our focus is to ensure that our bundled third party software will continue to properly process date/time data after January 1, 2000.

Brother FAX/MFC and multi-functioncenters will function properly after January 1, 2000, provided that all nonBrother hardware, software and firmware used by our customers in connection or combination with Brother FAX/MFC, and bundled software, accurately exchange date data with the Brother products.

Please continue to check our Web page for updates at http://www.brother.com. All remedies will be provided to individual customers via software patches through software download or from Brother Customer Service.
