The EU Committee of Permanent Representatives is set to endorse the EU Cyber Resilience Act, which has been updated to reflect amendments to reporting obligations, highly critical products, and product lifetime. The move comes after the Spanish presidency of the EU Council of Ministers shared a revised compromise text discussed at the Horizontal Working Party on Cyber Issues earlier this month. The final version was circulated on Thursday ahead of the Committee of Permanent Representatives meeting scheduled to adopt the EU Council's position on Wednesday. The European Parliament's Industry Committee is also set to adopt its version of the text on the same day, with no plenary vote expected. Negotiations between the EU co-legislators are due to start in September.
Meanwhile, a press release issued by The White House announced a new Cybersecurity Labeling Program for Smart Devices to Protect American Consumers. The scheme, due to launch in 2024, will require a logo to be included on products meeting criteria published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
