California Attorney General to Hold Forums on Consumer Privacy Act Regulations


Discussions and stakeholder comments will help officials develop regulations associated with consumers’ rights and requirements for businesses.

1/4/2019 14:00

Following passage of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA), the state’s attorney general is developing regulations to facilitate consumers’ rights under the new law and provide businesses with compliance guidelines.

As part of the rulemaking process, the attorney general’s office and California Department of Justice (DOJ) will hold six public forums in January and February to obtain input from stakeholders.

The law, which takes effect Jan. 1, 2020, requires companies to tell consumers?upon request?what personal data they possess, why they have the data and if third parties have access to it, ACA International previously reported. Consumers may ask companies to delete their personal data and request that they do not sell it.

ACA International members should consider participating in the meetings to learn more about the CCPA or submitting comments and share their experiences with ACA by emailing our Communications Department at [email protected] Attn: Katy Zillmer.

The forums (times listed in local time zones) will be held:
