FTC Eliminates Dealer, OEM Label Burden

Effective May 31, 2013, the FTC will no longer require a special label for new alternative-fueled vehicles (AFVs).


NADA Regulatory Affairs had strongly advocated for this change, arguing that alternative-fuel information on the FTC label duplicated that found on EPA's revised fuel economy label.


The FTC also has eliminated its AFV label mandate for used vehicles, agreeing with NADA that such labels were of limited usefulness for consumers, yet imposed undue regulatory burdens on dealerships.
