The California Attorney General’s Office has released a notice of modifications to the proposed regulations for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) on Feb. 7, 2020, and additional updates on Feb. 10, 2020.
The release included the text of the modified proposed regulations in a redline version, and a clean version, along with a list of documents and other information relied upon in the rulemaking process.
The notice states that the modifications were made in response to public comments received during the initial comment period and to conform with the proposed regulations with recent changes in the law.
The California Attorney General accepted written comments regarding the modified regulations until Feb. 25, 2020. Final regulations are expected to be issued after the comment period, and prior to July 1, 2020, which is the earliest possible day the Attorney General can enforce the law. A final statement of reasons is expected to be issued with the final rulemaking to provide further context and clarification of the regulations.
Some of the other modifications to the proposed regulations include:
►Guidance on the Definition of “Personal Information.”
►Addition of “Just-In-Time Notification” for unexpected data collection.
►Guidance on Accessibility Requirements of Notices.
►Additional Guidance on Requirements for Complying With Requests to Know and Requests to Delete.
►Additional Detail on Requests to Opt-Out.
►Clarification of Obligations Imposed on Service Providers.
►Guidance on the Separation of Employment Notices from Consumer Notices.
►Removal of 90-Day Look-Back Period for Opt-Out Requests.
While the modifications address many key issues, additional updates may be made by the Attorney General at the conclusion of the current comment period. DocMagic will continue to monitor the development of CCPA regulations.
