As part of the Federal Trade Commissions systematic review of all current FTC rules and guides, the agency is announcing a revised regulatory review schedule for 2018.

To ensure that its rules and industry guides stay relevant and are not overly burdensome, the FTC reviews them on a 10-year schedule. The review schedule is published each year, with adjustments in response to public input, changes in the marketplace, and resource demands. For 2018, the Commission intends to initiate reviews of, and solicit public comments on, the following:

  • Guides for the Nursery Industry, 16 CFR Part 18;
  • Test Procedures and Labeling Standards for Recycled Oil, 16 CFR Part 311;
  • Disclosure Requirements and Prohibitions Concerning Franchising, 16 CFR Part 436; and
  • Identity Theft [Red Flag] Rules, 16 CFR Part 681.

The Commission vote to publish the proposed Federal Register notice regarding its regulatory review program was 2-0.

The Federal Trade Commission works to promote competition, and protect and educate consumers. You can learn more about consumer topics and file a consumer complaint online or by calling 1-877-FTC-HELP (382-4357).
