Title: Rules of Practice for Adjudicative Proceedings 

On May 12, 2015, the Commission voted to direct the Office of the General Counsel (OGC) to present for Commission consideration a revision of the agency's Rules of Practice for Adjudicative Proceedings (Rules), 16 CFR part 1025. OGC drafted a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), proposing to modernize the Rules to reflect changes in civil and administrative litigation since the Rules were adopted in 1980. OGC submitted the draft NPRM to the Commission on January 20, 2016. The Commission voted to approve the draft NPRM with changes, which published in the Federal Register on April 13, 2016. Staff will review the comments and prepare a final rule briefing package for Commission consideration.
