FPF Policy Brief: Comparative Analysis of California and U.K. Age-Appropriate Design Codes
The Future of Privacy Forum’s policy brief provides a comparison of the California Age-Appropriate Design Code Act (AADC), a first-of-its-kind privacy-by-design law in the United States, and the United Kingdom’s Age-Appropriate Design Code. While there are distinctions between the two codes, the California AADC, which is set to become enforceable on July 1, 2024, was modeled after the UK’s version and represents a significant change in the regulation of the technology industry and how children will experience online products and services.
FPF’s youth and education privacy team is closely monitoring the implementation of the California AADC. Catch up on previous blog posts tracking the bill’s progress and our formal analysis once the bill was signed into law.
