Federal Trade Commission --Their Mission, Vision, Goals and more ...

Mission -- Working to protect consumers by preventing anticompetitive, deceptive, and unfair business practices, enhancing informed consumer choice and public understanding of the competitive process, and accomplishing this without unduly burdening legitimate business activity.

Vision -- A vibrant economy characterized by vigorous competition and consumer access to accurate information.

Goals -- Protect Consumers, maintain competition, and advance organizational performance.

More -- As a consumer or business person, you may be more familiar with the work of the Federal Trade Commission than you think. The FTC deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American.
The FTC is the only federal agency with both consumer protection and competition jurisdiction in broad sectors of the economy. The FTC pursues vigorous and effective law enforcement; advances consumers’ interests by sharing its expertise with federal and state legislatures and U.S. and international government agencies; develops policy and research tools through hearings, workshops, and conferences; and creates practical and plain-language educational programs for consumers and businesses in a global marketplace with constantly changing technologies. FTC’s work is performed by the Bureaus of Consumer Protection, Competition and Economics. That work is aided by the Office of General Counsel and seven regional offices.

The seal of the Federal Trade Commission was adopted at the time of the agency’s creation in 1915. Designed by Tiffany and Co., which at the time designed many of the seals used by government agencies, the FTC seal symbolizes many of the values that inform the agency’s mission.

The seal serves as the agency’s formal emblem and also is the centerpiece of the agency’s flag, which was created in 1977.
