On August 17, 2020, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced the finalization of the CCPA regulations, bringing an almost year-long process of refinement to an end. Here’s what was in the last round of clarifications to the law.
On August 17, 2020, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced the finalization of the CCPA regulations, bringing an almost year-long process of refinement to an end. We’ve covered some of the previous rounds of updates to the CCPA elsewhere, but given that this marks the end of long rounds of CCPA wordsmithing, we thought the August 17 clarifications deserved a standalone post.
The key areas that were refined or clarified in this latest and final round were:
The final round of CCPA clarifications skews business-friendly. Some of the more onerous requirements around the Do Not Sell requirement were eased or alleviated. With that said, it’s notable that businesses may now need to do more legwork when scoping their dealings with authorized agents purporting to represent California consumers. Perhaps the highest-level takeaway is that the CCPA text is actually finalized – at least until California returns to the ballot box on November 4, 2020 to vote on “CCPA 2.0”, The California Privacy Rights Act.
