California Finalizes CCPA Regulations

California’s Office of Administrative Law approved a set of final regulations implementing the California Consumer Privacy Act—a 2018 law that substantially changes how certain companies doing business with California residents must handle their customers’ data. The law took effect on Jan. 1, 2020, and the final regulations take effect immediately.

The OAL made technical corrections to the final regulations and also withdrew four provisions from the final rules for further consideration by the state attorney general. These provisions—which addressed requirements to provide notice at the collection of personal information, notice of the right to opt-out of sale of personal information, methods for requesting to opt-out of the sale of personal information, and how a business must respond to a consumer request made through an authorized agent—may be later resubmitted to the OAL after review and possible revision. ABA has prepared a staff summary of the final regulations and the withdrawn provisions. For more information, contact Kitty Ryan.
