How You Can Shape the U.S. Government's Policies and Regulations Regarding the Internet of Things

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration is offering a one-of-a kind opportunity to influence the ways in which the U.S. government responds to the growth of IoT technologies.
By Ronald E. Quirk Jr.

Additional Issues
The NTIA invites stakeholders to address important IoT issues that are not specifically teed up in the RPC. These include, but are not limited to appropriate areas for multi-stakeholder engagement, the agency's overall role with respect to the IoT within the federal government, and private-sector and government collaboration on IoT implementation.

Make Your Voice Heard to Shape IoT Policy
The NTIA candidly acknowledges that there is no consensus as to how the Internet of Things should be defined or implemented. The green paper that will result from the comments received in this proceeding will be instrumental in the federal government's identification of key issues impacting the IoT, highlighting of benefits and challenges, and setting of regulations and policies. In summary, this proceeding offers private-sector stakeholders a unique opportunity to shape public policy in a major emerging economic sector.

Consequently, any stakeholder interested in influencing how the IoT will be implemented should participate in this proceeding. The CommLaw Group has been following this proceeding very closely. We have IoT specialists available to answer any questions you may have. Please contact Ronald E. Quirk, Jr., at or (703) 714-1305 for additional information.
