Notice; extension of comment period.


The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) extends the period for submitting written comments on the request for information (RFI) entitled “Developing a Privacy Framework,” published on November 14, 2018. The public comment period was originally to close on December 31, 2018; the comment period is extended to now end on January 14, 2019. NIST is taking this action to provide additional time to submit comments because multiple interested parties have expressed difficulty in submitting comments by the original deadline and have asked for an extension.

Written comments may be submitted by mail to Katie MacFarland, National Institute of Standards and Technology, 100 Bureau Drive, Stop 2000, Gaithersburg, MD 20899. Electronic submissions may be sent to, and may be in any of the following formats: HTML, ASCII, Word, RTF, or PDF. Please cite “Developing a Privacy Framework” in all correspondence. Comments received by the deadline will be posted at​privacyframework without change or redaction, so commenters should not include information they do not wish to be posted (e.g., personal or confidential business information). Comments that contain profanity, vulgarity, threats, or other inappropriate language or content will not be posted or considered.
