Public comment periods for Funeral Rule and Endorsement Guides extended

Share This Page

The FTC has extended the public comment periods as part of the regulatory review of the Funeral Rule and Endorsements Guides. Because the Coronavirus crisis may affect commenters’ ability to file by the original date, we want to make sure you have enough time to share your feedback.

The date for comments of the Funeral Rule, which is designed to enhance consumer protection by requiring that consumers receive certain information concerning goods and services they may purchase from a funeral service provider, has been extended to June 15th.

The deadline for comments about the Endorsement Guides, which offer guidance to businesses and others about how established FTC advertising principles apply to the use of testimonials and endorsements in marketing, is now June 22nd.

We value your input throughout the regulatory review process and hope the extensions will make it easier for you to offer feedback. To file a public comment, please go to the regulatory review pages for the Funeral Rule and the Endorsement Guides.
