EFF and Eight Other Privacy Organizations Back Out of NTIA Face Recognition Multi-Stakeholder Process | Electronic Frontier Foundation

EFF, along with eight other consumer-focused privacy advocacy organizations has backed out of the National Telecommunications Information Administration’s multi-stakeholder process to develop a privacy-protective code of conduct for companies using face recognition. After 16 months of active engagement in the process, we decided this week it was no longer an effective use of our resources to continue in a process where companies wouldn’t even agree to the most modest measures to protect privacy.

EFF was joined by ACLU; Center for Democracy & Technology; Center for Digital Democracy; Consumer Action; Consumer Federation of America; Consumer Watchdog; Common Sense Media; and Alvaro M. Bedoya, the executive director of the Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown University Law Center.

EFF has been actively engaged in encouraging companies and federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to limit the use of face recognition. As our joint public statement notes:
