Letter to FTC Chair Edith Ramirez Requesting Delay of COPPA Implementation

Washington, D.C. (April 15, 2013) – Today, the Application Developers Alliance is asking the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to delay the effective date of changes to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The revised rules, which go into effect July 1, create significant new obligations for app developers and their partners.

Delaying the rules would give developers more time to understand the requirements, to consult with partners regarding re-engineering their apps, and to make the necessary changes. Additional time will also provide the FTC an opportunity to provide guidance materials that promote compliance.
