EU embraces IoT safety label plan

1 min read

The European Union has signed an agreement with the US to develop a joint roadmap for a consumer labelling programme for IoT devices. The labelling scheme, first introduced in the US by the Biden administration, aims to inform customers about the cybersecurity of smart devices and increase consumer trust. The policy calls for a cyber trust mark to appear on the packaging of devices that meet certain security standards, similar to the Energy Star label for energy-efficient electronics. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is coordinating efforts to finalise the labelling plan and associated standards, with input from stakeholders such as trade associations and consumer electronics companies.
