Mission
The Federal Trade Commission enforces a variety of federal antitrust and consumer
protection laws. The Commission seeks to ensure that the nation's markets function
competitively, and are vigorous, efficient, and free of undue restrictions. The Commission
also works to enhance the smooth operation of the marketplace by eliminating acts or
practices that are unfair or deceptive. In general, the Commission's efforts are directed
toward stopping actions that threaten consumers' opportunities to exercise informed
choice. Finally, the Commission undertakes economic analysis to support its law
enforcement efforts and to contribute to the policy deliberations of the Congress, the
Executive Branch, other independent agencies, and state and local governments when
requested.

In addition to carrying out its statutory enforcement responsibilities, the Commission
advances the policies underlying Congressional mandates through cost-effective
non-enforcement activities, such as consumer education.
