Only U.S. legal entities subject to the investigatory and enforcement jurisdiction of the FTC are eligible for this certification. Generally, the FTC's jurisdiction covers acts or practices in or affecting commerce by any "person, partnership, or corporation." The FTC does not have jurisdiction over most depository institutions (banks, federal credit unions, and savings & loan institutions), telecommunications and interstate transportation common carrier activities, air carriers, labor associations, most non-profit organizations, and most packer and stockyard activities. In addition, the FTC's jurisdiction with regard to insurance activities is limited to certain circumstances. If you are uncertain as to whether your organization falls under the jurisdiction of the FTC, you will need to seek legal counsel.
