Update applicable to:
All California employers subject to the CCPA
A California judge has delayed the enforcement of the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) regulations until March 29, 2024, providing a reprieve for businesses subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
What are the details?
The CPRA, which was passed in 2020, required further regulations to be implemented by July 1, 2022, with enforcement starting on July 1, 2023. However, the California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) was unable to complete the rulemaking process on time, and the regulations were finalized on March 29, 2023, giving businesses only three months to comply.
The California Chamber of Commerce filed a lawsuit seeking to delay enforcement, and the court granted their request for an injunction, pushing the enforcement of CPRA regulations to March 29, 2024.
This ruling means that businesses still need to comply with the CPRA provisions outlined in the ballot initiative, but they have more time to fully comply with the detailed requirements of the regulations.
