The FTC Collaboration Act- Benefits for the Business Community

| 4 min

On October 10, 2022, the FTC Collaboration Act of 2021 became law. The Act’s stated purpose is to enhance cooperation between the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and state attorneys general (AGs) in combatting unfair and deceptive practices. The Act requires the FTC to complete a study and issue a public report based on that study. Throughout the summer, the FTC accepted comments from interested stakeholders on a series of questions related to the roles and responsibilities of the FTC and AGs that best advance collaboration and consumer protection, and how to dedicate resources and implement accountability mechanisms to fulfill those goals.
