OMB Approves DHS Drone Privacy Rule Notice

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had approved the DHS rulemaking notice on “Protecting Privacy, Civil Rights & Civil Liberties: Best Practices for Unmanned Aircraft Systems”. This rulemaking was not listed in the latest Unified Agenda so there are no details publicly available on the contents of this notice.

I expect that this is probably an advance notice of proposed rulemaking or a request for information as the DHS Privacy Office starts to tackle the issue of establishing privacy guidelines for the Department’s use of unmanned aerial vehicles.

I expect that we will probably see publication of this notice next week.
