As part of its ongoing periodic review of its rules and guides, the Federal Trade Commission is seeking public comment on its Guides Against Deceptive Labeling and Advertising of Adhesive Compositions (Guides). The FTC requests comments about the overall costs and benefits of the guides and their regulatory and economic impact will be published soon in the Federal Register and comments will be accepted for 60 days.
The Guides, effective since 1967, are intended to prevent misrepresentations regarding the composition, physical properties and uses of certain specified types of adhesive products. They advise on what types of claims made about these products will be viewed as deceptive in advertising or labeling.
The Commission seeks public comment on a number of questions, including the following:
Comments should be addressed to: Secretary, Federal Trade Commission, Room H-159, Sixth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20580 and should be identified as "Adhesive Compositions Guides, 16 CFR Part 235 -- Comment." E-mail comments will be accepted at: email@example.com, and should be accompanied by a return e-mail address to which an acknowledgment of receipt can be sent.
The Commission vote to publish the Federal Register notice concerning the Guides was 5-0.
Copies of the Federal Register notice and the Guides are available from the FTC’s web site at http://www.ftc.gov and also from the FTC’s Consumer Response Center, Room 130, 6th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20580; 202-FTC-HELP (202- 382-4357); TDD for the hearing impaired 1-866-653-4261.
