U.S. Safe Web Act

Law:

Pub. L. No. 109-455, 120 Stat. 3372, extended by Pub. L. No. 112-203, 126 Stat. 1484, codified at 15 U.S.C. §§ 41 et seq.

This Act, amending the FTC Act, provides the FTC with a number of tools to improve enforcement regarding consumer protection matters, particularly those with an international dimension, including increased cooperation with foreign law enforcement authorities through confidential information sharing and provision of investigative assistance. The Act also allows enhanced staff exchanges and other international cooperative efforts.

Congress reauthorized the SAFE Web Act in 2012. See Public L. No. 112-203, 126 Stat. 1484.
