FTC Looks at Licensing

FTC Looks at Licensing Featured

The Federal Trade Commission’s Economic Liberty Task Force has announced the agenda for its second roundtable in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 7, to examine empirical evidence on the effects of occupational licensing.
“The Effects of Occupational Licensure on Competition, Consumers, and the Workforce: Empirical Research and Results” will bring together experts who have studied and attempted to quantify the effects of occupational licensing regulations on service providers, consumers, and markets.
The Task Force’s first roundtable, held in July, focused on enhancing license portability across state lines.
The Nov. 7 roundtable will focus on the ability of empirical research to clarify costs and benefits, and to better inform policy makers’ discussions of occupational licensing reform.
It is free to the public and begins at 1 p.m. at Constitution Center, 400 7th St., SW, Washington, D.C., 20024. The FTC invites comments from the public on the topics to be addressed.
