California Passes Amendments to Privacy Law

California Passes Amendments to Privacy Law

The California legislature passed last August 31 several amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act which are likely to impact its implementation significantly.

Senate Bill 1121, where the amendments are set out, clarifies that the CCPA is to go into effect immediately after the bill is signed into law. However, its directives will only become operative on January 1, 2020.

The bill also eliminate the need of consumers to notify the Attorney General when suing companies for data breaches, and clarifies that data handled pursuant to, and covered entities subject to, certain specific laws are not subject to the CCPA.
