CalPPA is seeking input from stakeholders in developing California’s privacy regulation. Comments are open to the public until Monday, November 8, 2021. CalPPA has invited comments on any area in which the CalPPA has authority to adopt rules[2], but is particularly interested in receiving comments on key new and undecided issues relating to the California Consumer Privacy Act, as amended by the CPRA. These topics include[3]:

CalPPA has released a set of tips for submitting effective comments. CalPPA will post further information on its rulemaking process here.

The CPRA authorized CalPPA to regulate on a wide range of data protection and privacy matters; entities should consider the effects of coming regulation on their operations and submit comments before the fast-approaching deadline, November 8.
