Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Recycled Oil Rule


The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) sought public comment on the costs and benefits associated with its Recycled Oil Rule (Rule) in 2018. The Rule, promulgated in 1995 pursuant to the “Energy Policy and Conservation Act” (EPCA), permits manufacturers and other sellers to represent on a recycled engine-oil container label that the oil is substantially equivalent to new engine oil, as long as the determination of equivalency is based on test procedures prescribed by the FTC.
