We previously announced the publication of the first set of proposed regulations that will implement the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which goes into effect January 1, 2020. Partner Alan Friel has authored an article published by OneTrust DataGuidance that details how the proposed regulations – and a half dozen amendments to the CCPA that recently became law – impact CCPA compliance. A copy of the article is available here. The proposed regulations are available here and an initial statement of reasons that explain the thinking behind the proposed regulations is available here.
The attorney general is currently taking written comments on the proposed regulations until December 6. BakerHostetler is preparing comments to file for specific clients, as well as a set of aggregate comments that reflect our clients’ concerns more generally. If you would like to contribute comments or would like assistance in crafting custom comments, contact the author.
