The Federal Trade Commission will hold an open meeting of the Commission virtually on Thursday, December 16, 2021. The open meeting will begin at 1pm ET and will be preceded by a time for members of the public to address the Commission.
The following items will be on the tentative agenda for the December 16 Commission meeting:
Business Before the Commission
Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to Combat Government and Business Impersonation Fraud: Staff will provide a presentation and the Commission will vote on an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to address rampant government and business impersonation fraud. Government and business impersonation scams are a leading source of consumer complaints and the largest source of total reported consumer financial losses – and have gotten worse during the pandemic.
At the start of the meeting, Chair Khan will offer brief remarks and will then invite members of the public to share feedback on the Commission’s work generally and bring relevant matters to the Commission’s attention. Members of the public must sign up for an opportunity to address the Commission virtually at the December 16 event. Each commenter will be allowed to speak for no more than two minutes. Anyone who cannot participate during the event may submit written comments or a link to a prerecorded video through a webform. Speaker registration and comment submission will be available through Monday, December 13, 2021, 8pm ET.
