FCC Extends Comment Dates for IOT Cybersecurity Labeling NPRM

On September 15, 2023, the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (“Bureau”) released an Order granting extension of time for filing comments and reply comments to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“NPRM”) seeking comment on a voluntary cybersecurity labeling program for Internet of Things devices.

For additional information please see previous blog post FCC Releases NPRM on IOT Device Voluntary Cybersecurity Labeling Program.

Two associations sought a 30-day extension of the comment deadline and an extension of the reply comment deadline until 45 days after the comment deadline due to the breadth and technical complexity of the questions posed in the NPRM.  The Bureau found good cause to grant an 11-day extension of time to file comments and an extension of time to file reply comments to 35 days after the comment date.  Accordingly, the new comment and reply comment deadlines are as follows:

Comments are due on or before October 6, 2023.

Reply Comments are due on or before November 10, 2023.
