Washington, DC - As part of the Federal Trade Commission’s systematic review of all current FTC rules and guides, the agency is announcing a modified 10-year regulatory review schedule.

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 2014, the Commission intends to begin reviews of, and solicit comments on, the following rules:

The Commission is currently reviewing 25 of the 65 rules and guides within its jurisdiction. The agency is postponing review of the Preservation of Consumers’ Claims and Defenses [Holder in Due Course Rule], 16 CFR Part 433, previously scheduled for 2014, until 2015.
