After a long wait, the California Attorney General submitted final CCPA regulations to the California Office of Administrative Law (“OAL”) today. He requested that the OAL expedite its review of the final regulations so that they would become effective by the statutorily mandated date of July 1, 2020.
Note that to date the Attorney General has indicated that he will not delay enforcement of the Act, or of the regulations when they are published. As a result, the Attorney General has implied that all businesses should be compliant with the Final Regulations by July 1, 2020.
A copy of the final regulations can be found on CCPA-Info.com. Among other things, the final regulations require most companies to update the following CCPA-related documents:
• Privacy notice.
• Data subject request protocol
• Data subject request communications templates
• Possible additional disclosures for “financial incentives.”
