Privacy Agency Releases Notice of Proposed Regulatory Action

The California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) has begun the formal rulemaking process to adopt proposed regulations implementing the Consumer Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (CPRA), a law amending and building on the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The CPPA's filing of the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking starts a 45-day public comment period that ends on August 23rd. A hearing on the proposed regulations will occur on August 24th and 25th, 2022 at 9:00 am PDT.

The CPRA amendments to the CCPA give California residents new rights over the personal information that covered businesses maintain about them. As noted by the CCPA, the proposed regulations do the following: (1) update existing CCPA regulations to harmonize them with CPRA amendments to the CCPA; (2) operationalize new rights and concepts introduced by the CPRA to provide clarity and specificity to implement the law; and (3) reorganize and consolidate requirements set forth in the law to make the regulations easier to follow and understand.
