The XRSI Privacy & Safety Framework

The XRSI Privacy & Safety Framework, also known as the XRSI Framework is a free, globally accessible baseline rulebook curated by the XR Safety Initiative (XRSI) that has a layered structure, outlining the focus areas that act as a set of functions within a system and how they interrelate to achieve privacy; standardized subcategories; and the corresponding set of privacy controls for Spatial Computing and XR domain. The framework provides a baseline set of standards, guidelines, and best practices that are regulation-agnostic. It includes privacy requirements drawn from the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), the U.S. government’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guidance, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule (COPPA), and a few other evolving laws, but is designed to adapt and include new requirements as new regulations come into effect. The framework is not a law or standard; it is a free tool that is continuously evolving.
