On June 1, 2020, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra submitted final proposed regulations under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) to the California Office of Administrative Law (OAL). The regulations will provide guidance to businesses on how to comply with the CCPA and will enable consumers to exercise new rights over their personal information. Under Executive Order N-40-20 related to the COVID-19 pandemic, OAL has 30 working days and an additional 60 calendar days to determine whether the regulations satisfy the procedural requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act. Once approved by the OAL, the final regulation text will be filed with the Secretary of State and become enforceable by law.
A copy of the complete rulemaking package submitted to OAL, including a text of the regulations, can be found by clicking on this link (or copy and paste into your browser) www.oag.ca.gov/ccpa.
Once the regulations have been approved in their final form, we are ready to assist clients in developing policies, tools, resources, and practices to comply with the CCPA and these regulations. As a reminder, although the regulations are not yet approved and effective, the CCPA will be enforceable by the California Attorney General on July 1, 2020. Are you ready?
