California: CPPA launches formal CPRA rulemaking process
The California Privacy Protection Agency ('CPPA') announced, on 8 July 2022, that it had commenced, on the same date, the formal rulemaking process for the Consumer Privacy Rights Act of 2020 ('CPRA'). In particular, the CPPA highlighted that the CPRA is set to amend the California Consumer Privacy Act ('CCPA') by, among other things:
- harmonising existing CCPA regulations with CPRA amendments;
- operationalising new rights introduced by the CPRA; and
- reorganising and consolidating requirements set forth in the law to make the regulations easier to follow and understand.
In addition, the CCPA provided a copy of the proposed regulations and supporting documents, and invited the public to participate in the rulemaking process by submitting written comments via email to [email protected] by 23 August 2022, or attending the public hearings scheduled for 24 and 25 August 2022.
