On September 19, 2017, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) published in the Federal Register final amendments to the Guide Concerning Fuel Economy Advertising for New Automobiles to address advertising claims prevalent in the market and harmonize with current Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) fuel economy labeling rules.

On the same date, the FTC published amendments the Rules and Regulations Under the Wool Products Labeling Act of 1939 (“Wool Rules”), the Rules and Regulations Under Fur Products Labeling Act (“Fur Rules”’), and the Rules and Regulations Under the Textile Fiber Products Identification Act (“Textile Rules”) to require the public to submit any requests to obtain, update, or cancel registered identification numbers via the FTC’s Web site. The revisions facilitate the use of the FTC’s web-based registered identification number (“RN”) system, which will streamline the application and update process for participating businesses, and greatly increase the efficiency with which the FTC delivers RN services to the public.
