Comment Period Extended on FTC Funeral Rule Changes

Federal Trade Commission (FTC)

The Federal Trade Commission recently voted to extend the public comment period for its advanced notice of proposed rulemaking on changes to the Funeral Rule to January 17, 2023. A number of commenters requested that the FTC extend the current deadline due to the holiday season. Information on how to submit comments can be found in the Federal Register notice.

In October 2022, the FTC announced that after a rule review, it would retain the Funeral Rule and issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking concerning potential amendments to the rule, including whether and how funeral providers should be required to display or distribute their price information online and through electronic means.

The Commission vote approving the public comment period extension was 4-0.
