In an article published by Compliance Week,  Morrison & Foerster partner Chris Lyon discussed the draft regulations recently issued by the California Attorney General to guide businesses’ implementation of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) in advance of it becoming operative.

“The draft rules provide valuable insight into the attorney general’s interpretation of how companies should implement CCPA requirements in practice,” Chris explained, adding that they also “provide helpful operational guidance about notices and handling consumer requests under the CCPA.”

Among other things, Chris also noted that the proposed regulations leave some questions for companies that need to be clarified before the law goes into effect on January 1, 2020. “Companies seeking specific step-by-step guidance on verifying a consumer’s identity may be disappointed that the rules do not provide more detail,” Chris said. “It is important for companies to take a close look at the draft rules and participate in the public comment process to inform the attorney general about areas of concern.”
