The Cybersecurity Coalition, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and 23 other organizations have requested a 30-day extension to the comment period for the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act (CIRCIA) from the Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Security Agency (CISA).

The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) was announced on April 4 and the comment period is open until June 3. The 26 organizations that have signed on to the letter are requesting to have comments close on July 3.

“The proposed rule is extensive and intricate, reflecting the complexities inherent in addressing cybersecurity within critical infrastructure sectors. The NPRM spans nearly 500 pages. Consequently, its length and depth necessitate a comprehensive review process to ensure that all stakeholders fully understand its implications,” the letter states.

Considering that the rules will impact every critical infrastructure sector, and potentially serve as a model for others, extending the comment period is sensible. The extension will give stakeholders the necessary time to review and evaluate the requirements, identify challenges, and propose solutions.
