Timeline for FTC Administrative Proceedings

March 23, 2022

The FTC has exclusive authority to enforce Section 5 of the FTC Act, 14 U.S.C. § 45, which prohibits unfair methods of competition. The FTC may seek preliminary injunctive relief in federal court for incipient violations of the FTC Act, but may also seek final relief in its own internal administrative proceedings. The FTC has promulgated rules that govern these administrative proceedings, similar to how the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure govern procedure in federal district court. Our checklist lays out the relevant timing and deadlines pursuant to the FTC Part 3 Rules.
