SP 800-53 Public Comments Overview
Welcome to the NIST SP 800-53 Public Comment Website
The NIST SP 800-53 Public Comment Site was developed to ensure that the SP 800-53 control catalog provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date set of controls/countermeasures to manage security, privacy, and supply chain risk. By modernizing the NIST comment process and moving to an online dataset instead of following a document-based update process, NIST can provide its stakeholders the most up-to-date controls in multiple data formats to manage risk while encouraging use of automation.
Stakeholders can provide feedback on controls by:
- submitting a "proposal" for a new control and/or control enhancement,
- submitting a "proposal" for a change to an existing control and/or control enhancement,
- reviewing and commenting on proposed updates to controls ("candidates") through this website,
- previewing controls that are planned for inclusion in a future update to SP 800-53 ("awaiting publication").
