Request for Comments on Multistakeholder Process To Develop Consumer Data Privacy Codes of Conduct

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) in the U.S. Department of Commerce has issued a Request for Public Comments  in response to the report on consumer data privacy issued by The White House in February.

According to the notice, the NTIA is requesting comment on "consumer data privacy issues that warrant the development of legally enforceable codes of conduct, as well as procedures to foster the development of these codes."

The report on Consumer Data Privacy in a Networked World: A Framework for Protecting Privacy and Promoting Innovation in the Global Digital Economy contained two central elements:

(1) A Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights, which is a set of principles the Administration believes should govern the handling of personal data in commercial sectors that are not subject to existing Federal privacy statutes; and

(2) a multistakeholder process, which NTIA will convene, to develop legally enforceable codes of conduct that specify how the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights applies in specific business contexts.

Comments are due March 26, 2012.
