Kritika Bharadwaj and Sophia Browning are quoted in an article, "Businesses Seek CCPA Clarity As California AG Issues Dire Warning," published by Compliance Week. As reported in the article, the comment period on the proposed regulations under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) closed on December 6 with more than a thousand pages of comments from the public, suggesting the businesses impacted still need clarity and additional time to address compliance related issues.
"Business groups across the board believe that the regulations as drafted would lead to confusion and opportunity for lapse or inconsistencies in compliance," said Bharadwaj. "Although businesses generally accept the need for giving consumers more transparency and control over their personal data, a common theme in the comments we have seen, not surprisingly, has been a pleading to align the requirements in the regulations with those in the statute," observed Browning.
Bharadwaj commented further that "[b]usinesses have called out some of the disclosure and notice-related obligations" of the regulations as proposed, while Browning explained these commenters argue the proposed regulations "leave room for ambiguity" and also "go beyond the requirements, and arguably the letter and spirit, of the statute, without adding any benefit to consumers or regulators."
