The Federal Trade Commission has made various consumer protection and competition data sets available on its Data Sets page.
Application Programming Interface (API)
An API is a means of offering a dataset so web developers can query, gather, and manipulate the data via their own applications or systems. Federal government agencies are encouraged to take a machine-readable approach to providing information by making high-value data and content available through Web APIs, supporting open standards and interoperability. Providing this information through Web APIs makes data assets freely available for use within agencies, between agencies, in the private sector, and by citizens.
The Federal Trade Commission currently offers two API endpoints:
- Early Termination Notices, which are related to the Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) Act’s requirements for companies concerning mergers and acquisitions. See the technical details for the HSR Early Termination Notices API endpoint.
- Do Not Call (DNC) complaints, essentially a list of the phone numbers of unwanted calls reported by consumers. See the technical details for the Do Not Call (DNC) Reported Calls Data API Endpoint.
