On behalf of the Department of Commerce and in conjunction with the other members of the United States government’s Task Force on Kids Online Health & Safety, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) is working to promote a healthier, safer and more private experience for minors accessing online platforms.
To that end, NTIA is seeking input and feedback on the following topics:
What are the current and emerging risks of health (including mental health), safety, and privacy harms to minors arising from use of online platforms.
What are the potential benefits on health, safety and privacy benefits stemming from minors’ use of online platforms.
What current and future industry efforts exist to mitigate harms and promote the health, safety and well-being of minors who access these online platforms.
Written comments in response to the RFC must be provided to NTIA by November 16, 2023, 45 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register. Comments submitted in response to the RFC will be made publicly available via the Regulations.gov website.
Comments should respond to questions posed in the RFC, and commenters are encouraged to correlate the content of their comments to the pillars and questions set forth in the RFC. Commenters need not respond to every question. Comments should be typed, double-spaced, and signed and dated by the filing party or a legal representative of that party.
