Franchise Disclosure Requirements

Rulemaking Status: 

The Securities Division is considering amending WAC 460-80-140 to correct a reference to the Federal Trade Commission’s franchise disclosure rule concerning financial statement disclosure requirements.

WAC 460-80-140 contains an incorrect citation to the financial statement requirements contained in the Federal Trade Commission’s franchise rule. The considered amendment would change the citation from 16 C.F.R. § 465.5(u) to 16 C.F.R. § 436.5. The correction under consideration would better coordinate the Securities Division’s rules with other federal and state agencies.
