California: CCPA to prepare and notify modifications to draft proposed CCPA regulations
OneTrust DataGuidance Research confirmed, on 1 November 2022, with David Stauss, Partner at Husch Blackwell, that, following its board meeting, the California Privacy Protection Agency Board ('CPPA Board') authorised staff to take all steps necessary to prepare and notify modifications to the draft proposed California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 ('CCPA') regulations. In particular, Stauss highlighted that "at the conclusion of the meeting, the Board authorised agency staff to take all steps necessary to prepare and notice modifications to the proposed regulatory amendments. Once noticed, stakeholders will have 15 days to provide comments. The Board's General Counsel explained that the Agency hopes to have final rules submitted to the Office of Administrative Law for review by the end of the year. If that timeframe holds, the regulations would become effective in late January or early February".
