FTC Announces New Location of the Agency’s Premerger Notification Office

The Federal Trade Commission has relocated its Premerger Notification Office (PNO) from the FTC headquarters building to the Constitution Center building, at the corner of 7th and D Streets S.W. in Washington, DC.

The FTC has issued a final Federal Register notice formally amending the Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) rules and form instructions to reflect the new location.

The new address, which goes into effect on April 28, 2014, is:

Premerger Notification Office
Federal Trade Commission, Room 5301
400 South 7th St., S.W.
Washington, DC 20024

The address for the DOJ’s premerger notification office remains the same:

Director of Civil Enforcement
Office of Operations, Antitrust Division
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Room #3335
Washington, DC 20530

Premerger documents can be submitted to both offices during normal business hours either by hand, or by certified or registered mail.  The HSR Form and Instructions can be found on the FTC’s website.

The Commission vote to issue the Federal Register notice was 4-0. Copies can be found on the FTC’s website and as a link to this press release. (FTC File No. P989216; the staff contact is Robert L. Jones, Premerger Notification Office, 202-326-2740)
