California Consumer Privacy Act Regulations

On July 8, 2022, the California Privacy Protection Agency commenced the formal rulemaking process to adopt regulations to implement the Consumer Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (CPRA). The proposed regulations: (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.
