Additional Complaint Information

Our file contains a pattern of complaints from consumers who state they receive OSHA compliance packages from Federal Compliance Publications, Inc., as well as a bill for $259.50. These consumers state they have never ordered any products from Federal Compliance Publications. In some cases, consumers have stated that Federal Compliance Publications, Inc. has called their business to verify their business address, but no order is placed. Shortly after this phone call, an OSHA compliance package arrives from Federal Compliance Publications, Inc. The complaints inform BBB that the employee(s) who answered these phone calls are not authorized to make any purchases or orders.

In response to these complaints, Federal Compliance Publications, Inc. states they record all phone calls and treat these calls as a valid verbal contract for products to be rendered. Federal Compliance Publications, Inc. adds an explanation of their sales procedures and, in most cases, the company agrees to cancel invoice.

On October 31, 2012, BBB sent certified correspondence to Federal Compliance Publications requesting their voluntary cooperation in resolving complaints on file with BBB and providing steps it will implement to eliminate the pattern of customer complaints. The company has not responded to BBB and complaints containing similar allegations continue to be filed with BBB.
