Keypoint: On the heels of last week’s Board meeting, Agency staff quickly turned around a modified version of the proposed regulations, triggering a fifteen day comment period and further signaling that the Agency is on track to finalize the regulations in January/February 2023.
On November 3, 2022, the California Privacy Protection Agency (Agency) issued a notice of modifications to the text of proposed California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) regulations. The notice follows a two-day meeting held by the Agency Board on October 28 and 29, 2022, during which the Board authorized Agency staff to take all steps necessary to prepare and notice modifications to the proposed regulatory amendments. The notice states that the Agency will accept written comments regarding the proposed changes or materials added to the rulemaking file up to 8:00 a.m. on Monday, November 21, 2022.
In the below post, we first provide a brief overview of the rulemaking process to date and its path forward. We then review some of the substantive modifications the Agency made to the proposed regulations after last week’s Board meeting.
