    Which is correct?

    1) The rates are subject to change without notice; or
    2) The rates are subjected to changed without notice.

    Talking Re: subject to

    It is very common for commercial ads and price lists to use:

    "Rates are subject to change without notice"

    In the fine print or as a footnote. or legal notice.

    Note the missing "The".

    With the missing "The" the second sentence becomes valid:

    "Rates are subjected to change without notice."

    works with the "The" too I guess

    I am being silly, please ignore.
