SB 2400 – Public Act 95-0994

Sponsored by Senator Link and Representative Ryg, Senate Bill 2400 established the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), which requires all private entities doing business in Illinois to adhere to a retention and destruction schedule of biometrics of the human body (fingerprints, voice prints, or iris scans). The legislation makes consent a prerequisite to the collection of biometrics by a private entity, prohibits private entities from selling biometrics and establishes minimal penalties for negligent mishandling of biometrics.
