The California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) has finalized its first substantive rulemaking package to further implement the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which was approved by the California Office of Administrative Law (OAL). The approved regulations are effective immediately.
According to a CCPA news release, the approved regulations:
The agency filed the final rulemaking package with OAL on February 14, 2023, initiating a 30-business day review period. This followed the CPPA board’s vote on February 3, 2023 to adopt and approve the agency’s rulemaking package. The regulations have not changed substantively since the agency board voted on modifications made at its October 29, 2022 meeting.
The formal rulemaking process began on July 8, 2022, with the publication of the agency’s notice of proposed rulemaking action in the California Regulatory Notice Register. This followed extensive pre-rulemaking activities, including a series of instructive informational sessions and a set of stakeholder sessions in the spring of 2022, and a request for preliminary comments in the fall of 2021.
The final regulations and supporting materials will be made available on the CPPA website as soon as they are processed, anticipated early next week.
