On Friday, August 14, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced that his office’s final regulations to implement the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) have been administratively approved, clearing the path for the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) to enforce the approved regulations immediately. The OAG has been enforcing the CCPA’s statutory provisions since July 1, 2020, but with this amendment, the CCPA is now fully implemented and enforceable. Notably, the final regulations do contain a number of substantive changes from the submitted version, including regarding nondisclosed uses of personal information and methods for submitting opt-out requests.

In another important development, AB 1281 (Chau), which would extend the CCPA’s limited exemptions from employment-related and business-to-business data into 2021, was voted out of the Senate Judiciary Committee on a bipartisan 9-0 vote on Thursday, August 13. The bill is being moved forward with the goal of ensuring full legislative approval before the constitutional deadline that requires the legislature adjourn its two-year session on August 31.
