On June 1, Attorney General Becerra submitted final proposed regulations to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), along with a Final Statement of Reasons to the California Office of Administrative Law (OAL) for approval. Under California law, OAL has thirty working days (plus an additional 60 calendar days under a California executive order relating to the COVID-19 pandemic) to approve the proposed regulations. Once approved, the final regulations will be filed with the California Secretary of State and become enforceable by law.
In light of the CCPA’s requirement that the regulations go into effect by July 1, Attorney General Becerra has requested that OAL expedite its review of the regulations—completing it within 30 working days—so that final regulations can go into effect on schedule.
The substance of the final proposed regulations remains unchanged from the second set of proposed revisions published by the Office of the Attorney General on March 11. For more information on those revisions, see our prior update available here.
