California Attorney General Finalizes CCPA Regulations as the Law's Enforcement Date Nears

With slightly less than one month before the July 1, 2020 enforcement date of the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), California’s Attorney General announced on June 2, 2020 that he had submitted the proposed final regulations to the California Office of Administrative Law (“OAL”). In order to have a chance for the regulations to be finalized before the date that the CCPA will be enforced, Attorney General Xavier Becerra requested an expedited review from the OAL. The OAL will have thirty 30 working days and 60 additional calendar days to review the regulations to confirm that they comply with California’s Administrative Procedure Act. In the Attorney General’s press release, he reiterated that his office is committed to enforcing the CCPA as of July 1, 2020.  For our full analysis, see our Privacy Blog.
