The Attorney General plans to begin enforcement of the CCPA starting July 1, 2020. Businesses subject to CCPA were required to begin complying with the law on January 1, 2020. Proposed final regulations under the CCPA were submitted to the California Office of Administrative Law on June 1, 2020 and are currently pending approval.
