Rule Making Authority Transferred from the OAG to the CalPPA
On October 21, 2021 the California Privacy Protection Agency (CalPPA) gave formalnotice to the Attorney General that the CalPPA is prepared to assume rulemaking responsibilities under the CCPA. Per the CCPA, 6 months from the date of said notice the rule making authority transfers from the OAG to the CalPPA. As such, on April 21, 2022, the rulemaking authority under the CCPA formally transferred to the CalPPA.
CCPA Regulations Transferred and Renumbered
On May 5, 2022, the CaliforniaOffice of Administrative Law (OAL) approved the transfer of the existing CCPA regulations. The CCPA regulations were in Title 11, Division 1, Chapter 20 of the California Code of Regulations. The OAL stated that the CalPPA’s regulations will go in Title 11, new Division 6 starting with section 7000. As such, Chapter 20 is effectively repealed and its contents have been moved to Division 6, Chapter 1. With this there has been a renumbering and reordering of the existing regulations. The regulations which were formally codified in Title 11, Division 1, Chapter 20 §§999.300-999.337 are now in Title 11, Division 6, Chapter 1 §§7000-7102 with room reserved for the new amended CCPA regulations.
