On June 1, 2020 the California Attorney General (AG) submitted the final text of the CCPA regulations to the California Office of Administrative Law (OAL) for approval. The final regulations appear to be unchanged from the latest draft published on March 11, 2020.
Generally, the OAL has 30 days to review and determine whether to approve the regulations. But currently, an executive order has granted an additional 60 days to finalize proposed regulations in light of the challenges agencies are facing due to COVID-19. Additionally, any regulation that is filed June 1 or later would not typically be effective until October 1. However, an agency can request an earlier effective date if it can demonstrate good cause, which is what the AG has done here. The AG has requested the OAL approve the regulations within 30 days and that an exception be made such that the regulations will be effective upon filing with the Secretary of State.
