The breach notification rule came out in "Interim Final" form on 8/24 of last year, and became effective "as is" thirty days later, on 9/23/09. However, HHS accepted comments for 60 days and, in response to those comments, HHS developed a final rule (i.e., "final final") that they sent to OMB for grading on May 14. Well, today HHS withdrew
the final final rule for further consideration, because the issue is "complex." Of course it is.
