FTC Extends Comment Deadline for Funeral Rule Review to June 15

For Your Information

The Federal Trade Commission is extending by sixty days the deadline to submit comments as part of the agency’s review of its Funeral Rule. The deadline was originally April 14, 2020; it is now June 15, 2020.

The FTC announced in February that it would accept comments on a wide range of issues related to the Funeral Rule. In response to requests from potential commenters for an extension due to the coronavirus pandemic, the FTC will soon publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing the comment deadline extension.

The Commission voted 5-0 to submit the notice to the Federal Register for publication.
