American Data Privacy and Protection Act Topic Page

This topic page contains a curation of the IAPP’s coverage, analysis and relevant resources regarding the American Data Privacy and Protection Act.

The proposed ADPPA and its legislative path are the closest U.S. Congress has ever been to passing comprehensive federal privacy legislation. As summarized on the U.S. Library of Congress, “This bill establishes requirements for how companies, including nonprofits and common carriers, handle personal data, which includes information that identifies or is reasonably linkable to an individual.” The full text of the bill can be found here.

The bill has the support of some factions of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, the agency that will be tasked with enforcing the bill if it passes.

The IAPP Resource Center includes a separate topic page for U.S. Federal Privacy, and a “U.S. Federal Privacy Legislation Tracker.”
