Start Supplemental Information
On February 12, 2020, the Commission announced that it would seek public comments on whether to make changes to the Endorsement Guides. The FTC's Regulatory Review and Request for Public Comment was subsequently published in the Federal Register, with April 21, 2020 established as the deadline for the submission of comments. See 85 FR 10104 (Feb. 21, 2020).
The Commission has received inquiries about extending the comment period deadline in light of the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Commission believes that a two-month extension is appropriate. Accordingly, it has decided to extend the deadline for submission of comments on the Endorsement Guides to Monday, June 22, 2020.
