Today, on October 10, 2019, the California Attorney General (“AG”) issued long-awaited proposed regulations implementing the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”).  The AG also issued a notice of proposed rulemaking action and an initial statement of reasons elaborating on the purposes of the proposed regulations. The proposed regulations are intended to “establish procedures to facilitate consumer’s new rights under the CCPA and provide guidance to businesses for how to comply.”

While the CCPA’s statutory compliance date is January 1, 2020, the AG stated in a related press conference that July 1, 2020 is the expected date of final regulations and enforcement.

The deadline for comments on the proposed regulations is 5:00pm local (Pacific) time on December 6, 2019.  Interested parties may also attend and provide comment at four scheduled public hearings on December 2 (Sacramento), December 3 (Los Angeles), December 4 (San Francisco), or December 5 (Fresno).
