On March 21, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced that it was reopening the public comment period on its recent proposal to update EnergyGuide label information and issue special labels for refrigerators and clothes washers. The proposed updates are intended to make it easier for consumers to compare products subject to new Department of Energy tests for measuring energy costs. Advertising Law News and Analysis covered the FTC’s original notice of the comment period here.

The comment period will remain open until April 1.
