Welcome to the Office of International Affairs

As more U.S. companies and consumers do business overseas, more FTC work involves international cooperation. The Office of International Affairs serves both as an internal resource to Commission staff on international aspects of their work and as an FTC representative with international organizations. In addition, the FTC cooperates with foreign authorities through formal and informal agreements. The FTC works with more than 100 foreign competition and consumer protection authorities around the world to promote sound policy approaches.


A project of the International Consumer Protection and Enforcement Network (ICPEN) to gather and share cross-border complaints and to help consumers resolve those complaints.
