CCPA Public Hearings Start This Week

December 02, 2019

The California Attorney General will be holding four public hearings in several California cities this week. The hearings will provide the public with an opportunity to take part in the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) rulemaking process. All members of the public are invited to speak on the regulations. Members of the public are also able to submit written comments regarding the proposed CCPA regulations by mail or email. The public comment period will end on Friday, December 6th at 5pm PT. 

The California Consumer Privacy Act is set to become the most comprehensive privacy law in the United States when it takes effect on January 1, 2020. The law broadly expands the rights of consumers, including the right to opt-out of the sale of personal information to third parties, and requires in-scope businesses to be significantly more transparent about how they collect, use, and disclose personal information.  

TrustArc will be attending the public hearing in San Francisco on December 4th and will share any relevant insights presented at the session.
