Presidential Transition Causes Delay in 2257 Revision

WASHINGTON — The presidential transition is apparently causing a delay in the release of revised 2257 regulations.

There’s no definitive date for the release, a. Justice Department spokesperson confirmed to XBIZ today. The date had been set to the ambiguous “12/00/08” in the department’s planning paperwork.

The same paperwork states that 2257 revision will “amend the recordkeeping and inspection requirements of 28 CFR Part 75 to account for changes in [2257],” according to a federal filing.

Those changes, in turn, will apparently be based on the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, as stated in the Justice Department’s paperwork.

How that weighs into 2257 wasn’t immediately clear. An XBIZ request to further elaborate that was sent to Andrew Oosterbaan, chief of the Justice Department’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, wasn’t immediately returned.
