WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) — The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced last week that it will issue a second Federal Register notice on proposed compulsory process orders to marketers of electronic cigarettes.
The goal will be to obtain information about their sales and marketing expenditures.
The FTC would use the collected information to deliver a report on the sales, marketing activities and expenditures in the new e-cigarette market, which has grown rapidly in the last few years.
The FTC first issued a Federal Register notice in 2015, seeking public comment on the proposed information collection. It received 37 comments in response to that notice. The second notice also seeks public comment. Comments will be allowed for 30 days before the notice is published in the Register.
The FTC voted 3-0 to approve the publication of the Federal Register notice.
