Made in USA claims – navigating FTC’s ‘all or virtually all’ standard

Kelley Drye & Warren LLP


Consumers continue to demand goods manufactured in the United States and will pay a premium for such products. At the same time, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) continues its high-profile focus on US origin claims, launching dozens of investigations, announcing various noteworthy settlements and advocating for a proposed rule that would include the possibility of civil penalties over $43,000 per violation. This webinar will explore Made in USA claims and discuss:

  • what types of claim have attracted regulatory attention;
  • how to comply with the FTC’s requirements; and
  • what to do if the FTC contacts you.
