Reminder: Utah Consumer Privacy Act goes into law on December 31, 2023

Update Applicable to:

All businesses in possession of consumer information in the state of Utah.

What happened?

On March 24, 2022, Utah Governor Spencer Cox signed Senate Bill 0227, the Utah Consumer Privacy Act (UCPA) into law, which will go into effect on December 31, 2023.

What are the details?

Previously communicated by Vensure here, the Utah Consumer Privacy law (UCPA) establishes a series of requirements for controllers or processors, such as but not limited to who is considered covered under the law, how much times does a covered entity have to remedy a violation once it receives a notice, exempt entities and much more.

“The UCPA is considered the most business-friendly state privacy law because it grants fewer consumer rights, does not require a data-protection assessment, and has a narrower scope of applicability.” – JDSupra.

Best practices

  • Determine if the size of the organization will make you a covered entity.
  • Create, review, and incorporate necessary policies and practices according to the new requirements.
  • Consider a communication plan and training for your managers, leaders, and employees.
  • Consult with a labor attorney for further guidance if needed.
