FCC and FTC sign cooperation memo

The Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Trade Commission have signed a memorandum of understanding to further the agencies’ ongoing cooperation on consumer protection matters. “The memorandum is designed to formalise the existing cooperation between the agencies, outlining how the FCC and FTC will coordinate consumer protection efforts. It outlines methods by which the agencies will coordinate and share information and recognises the agencies’ expertise in their respective jurisdictions.” In addition, the memorandum recognises the two agencies’ complementary authorities with regard to practices by common carriers. The agencies have followed a similar memorandum of understanding related to telemarketing enforcement issues since 2003.
