On April 28, the PNO will move to its new offices on the fifth floor of Constitution Center, located at the corner of 7th and D Streets SW above the L’Enfant Plaza Metro Station. We hope to make this a seamless transition with no interruption in our ability to receive filings. We will continue to accept filings at the current location in the FTC HQ office on the third floor up until 5 p.m. on Friday, April 25, and reopen on the fifth floor of the Constitution Center at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, April 28.
Of course, moving from our home of over 30 years will bring some changes. For instance, in anticipation of our move and starting immediately, the PNO asks that all parties submitting HSR filings use only letter-sized redwelds and folders. Due to storage space limitations at the new building, please do not use legal-sized redwelds or legal-sized file folders with your filing submission.
There also will be new security measures for all visitors at Constitution Center, so stay tuned for additional instructions on how to deliver filings at our new location. We’ll be providing updates in this blog and on the Premerger Office webpage as moving day gets closer.
Two things that won’t change: We’re taking our office phone numbers and e-mail addresses with us when we move, and, as always, PNO staff will be available any day to answer questions about HSR filing requirements.
