About the Business Center

The FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection enforces laws that protect consumers against unfair or deceptive practices. The Business Center gives you and your business tools to understand and comply with the law. Regardless of the size of your organization or the industry you’re in, knowing – and fulfilling – your compliance responsibilities is smart, sound business.

The guidance documents in the Business Center are your link to the law. Browse by topic - Advertising & Marketing, Credit & Finance, Privacy & Security - or by industry, to find what you need to know.

The legal resources section of the Business Center is where you’ll find more in-depth, legal information - like case highlights, advisory opinions, staff letters, and rules the FTC enforces. You’ll also find staff reports and FTC workshops.

The multimedia gallery offers short videos and podcasts that explain your compliance responsibilities. 

The materials in the Business Center don’t have any copyright restrictions, so you can share them with your employees, your colleagues and your community.
