Description

The Federal Trade Commission is seeking public comments on its Guides for the Nursery Industry (Nursery Guides) as part of its systematic review of all current FTC rules and guides.

Issued in 1979, the Guides address sales practices for outdoor plants, including deceptive advertising claims regarding quantity, size, grade, kind, species, age, maturity, condition, vigor, hardness, growth ability, price, and origin or place where grown. As part of its periodic regulatory review, the Commission substantively amended the Guides in 1994.

The Commission seeks comments on the economic impact and continuing need for the Guides; possible conflict between the Guides and state, local, federal or international laws; and the effect of any technological, economic, environmental, or other industry changes on the Guides.

The Commission vote to approve the Federal Register Notice was 2-0. The notice will be published in the Federal Register soon. Instructions for filing comments appear in the Federal Register Notice. Comments must be received by April 20, 2018; they will be posted at www.ftc.gov/policy/public-comments. (FTC File No. P994248; the staff contact is Megan Gray, Bureau of Consumer Protection, 202-326-3408)
