The California Privacy Protection Agency Board met this week to discuss the progress of the new California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) who is in charge of enforcing the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA). The Board discussed that they don’t expect to meet the CPRA’s July 1, 2022 rulemaking deadline. The CPPA anticipates finalizing the regulations in the third or fourth quarter of 2022 leaving only a few weeks for businesses to comply by the January 1, 2023 effective date.

Formal rulemaking will not take place until April 2022 when rulemaking authority officially transfers to the Board. As a result of this transfer of agency authority, the current California Consumer Privacy Act is being refiled in the California Code of Regulations and will go into Title 11, new division 6, starting with section 7000.
