Notice of revised regulatory review schedule.


The Federal Trade Commission (“Commission”) has a program of systematic review of all of its rules and guides. The Commission hereby gives notice that, based on its current ongoing review proceedings, as well as additional rulemaking proceedings required by new legislation, it does not intend to announce review of any additional rules or guides during 2004. The ten-year regulatory review schedule previously published by the Commission, 67 FR 9630 (Mar. 4, 2002), has been modified accordingly.

The Commission has decided not to initiate review of any additional rules or guides during 2004. Currently, the Commission has ongoing review or amendment proceedings that relate to a number of its rules and guides. In addition, during 2004, the Commission will be required to promulgate rules pursuant to the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003, Pub. L. 108-159 (requiring at least 25 separate rules and 8 studies); the Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act of 2003, Pub. L. 108-164; and the Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act of 2003, Pub. L. 108-187. Accordingly, the Commission proposes a revised ten-year regulatory review schedule. A copy of this tentative schedule is appended. The Commission may, in its discretion, modify or reorder the schedule in the future to incorporate new legislative rules, or to respond to external factors (such as changes in the law) or other considerations.
