2008 FDD Rule Change

Are you FTC-compliant? Effective July 1, 2008, a revised Federal Trade Commission rule governs franchise disclosure documents. That's why the document known as the Uniform Franchise Offering Circular, or UFOC, is now known as the Franchise Disclosure Document, or FDD.

The new FTC rule does more than change the name of the document—it imposes new requirements for its contents, too. Franchises whose FDDs are not fully compliant with the July 1, 2008, rule change risk FTC penalties, lawsuits, and more.
