Analysis of Proposed Consent Order To Aid Public Comment The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) has accepted, subject to final approval, an agreement containing a consent order from Block Division, Inc. (‘‘respondent’’). The proposed consent order has been placed on the public record for thirty (30) days for receipt of comments by interested persons. Comments received during this period will become part of the public record. After thirty (30) days, the Commission will again review the agreement and the comments received, and will decide whether it should withdraw from the agreement or make final the agreement’s proposed order. This matter involves respondent’s marketing, sale, and distribution of pulley blocks and other products with claims that the products are of U.S.origin. According to the FTC’s complaint, respondent represented that its products are ‘‘Made in USA.’’ In fact, respondent’s products incorporate significant imported parts, including imported steel pulley plates that entered the United States from overseas already stamped ‘‘Made in USA.’’ VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Mar 13, 2017 Jkt 241001 The complaint alleges that respondent’s claims that its products are ‘‘Made in USA’’ were false or misleading, or not substantiated at the time the representations were made. Accordingly, the complaint alleges that respondent engaged in deceptive acts or practices in violation of Section 5(a) of the FTC Act. The proposed consent order contains provisions designed to prevent respondent from engaging in similar acts and practices in the future. Consistent with the FTC’s Enforcement Policy Statement on U.S. Origin Claims, Part I prohibits Block Division, Inc. from making U.S.-origin claims for its products unless either: (1) The final assembly or processing of the product occurs in the United States, all significant processing that goes into the product occurs in the United States, and all or virtually all ingredients or components of the product are made and sourced in the United States; or (2) a clear and conspicuous qualification appears immediately adjacent to the representation that accurately conveys the extent to which the product contains foreign parts, ingredients, and/or processing. Part II prohibits respondent from making any ‘‘Made in USA’’ or other country-of-origin claim about a product or service unless the claim is true, not misleading, and respondent has a reasonable basis substantiating the representation. Parts III through VI are reporting and compliance provisions. Part III requires respondent to acknowledge receipt of the order, to provide a copy of the order to certain current and future principals, officers, directors, and employees, and to obtain an acknowledgement from each such person that they have received a copy of the order. Part IV requires the filing of compliance reports within one year after the order becomes final and within 10 days of any change in respondent that would affect compliance with the order. Part V requires respondent to maintain certain records, including records necessary to demonstrate compliance with the order. Part VI requires respondent to submit additional compliance reports when requested by the Commission and to permit the Commission or its representatives to interview respondent’s personnel. Finally, Part VII is a ‘‘sunset’’ provision, terminating the order after twenty (20) years, with certain exceptions. The purpose of this analysis is to aid public comment on the proposed order. It is not intended to constitute an PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13605 official interpretation of the proposed order or to modify its terms in any way. By direction of the Commission.

OMB Control Number: 3084–0112. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Abstract: On December 29, 2016, the FTC sought public comment on the information collection requirements associated with Regulation O. 81 FR 95995. No germane comments were received.1 Pursuant to the OMB regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, that implement the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., the FTC is providing this second opportunity for public comment while seeking OMB approval to renew the preexisting clearance for the Rule. The Pre-sale Availability Rule, 16 CFR. 702, is one of three rules 2 that the FTC issued as required by the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, 15 U.S.C. 2301 et seq. (Warranty Act or Act).3 The Pre-sale Availability Rule requires sellers and warrantors to make the text of any written warranty on a consumer product costing more than $15 available to the consumer before sale. Among other things, the Rule requires sellers to make the text of the warranty readily available either by (1) displaying it in close proximity to the product or (2) furnishing it on request and posting signs in prominent locations advising consumers that the warranty is available. The Rule requires warrantors to provide materials to enable sellers to comply with the Rule’s requirements and also sets out the methods by which warranty information can be made available before the sale if the product is sold through catalogs, mail order, or door to door sales. In addition, in 2016, the FTC revised the Rule to allow warrantors to post warranty terms on Internet Web sites if they also provide a non-Internet based method for consumers to obtain the warranty terms and satisfy certain other conditions. The revised Rule also allows certain sellers to display warranty terms pre-sale in an electronic format if the warrantor has used the online method of disseminating warranty terms. Likely Respondents: Manufacturers and retailers of consumer products. Estimated Annual Hours Burden: 2,823,803 hours (221,547 hours for manufacturers + 2,602,256 hours for retailers). 1 The Commission received six non-germane comments. 2 The other two rules relate to the information that must appear in a written warranty on a consumer product costing more than $15 if a warranty is offered and minimum standards for informal dispute settlement mechanisms that are incorporated into a written warranty. 3 40 FR 60168 (Dec. 31, 1975).

These existing programs will be coordinated into a network, to provide efficiency in monitoring and collaborative crossprogram review of performance with other Gulf ecosystem recovery efforts. The program will: (1) Create an inventory of the existing monitoring programs, data, protocols and standards; (2) determine the minimum monitoring elements needed to evaluate the performance of restoration projects; (3) evaluate monitoring program suitability; (4) combine data from the suitable existing programs into searchable databases for Council use; (5) examine the inventory to determine what data are missing (i.e. identify information gaps) that would be required for the RESTORE Council; (6) document existing baseline assessments of habitat and water quality conditions; and (7) provide recommendations to the Council to supplement and refine the existing monitoring programs to fill-in the information gaps where possible.
