Re: Proposed California Consumer Privacy Act Regulations
Dear Attorney General Becerra,
The Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA)1 appreciates this opportunity to comment on the proposed California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) regulations.
I. Executive Summary
In promulgating regulations under the CCPA, it is important that the Attorney General’s office endeavor to create clear and consistent rules that businesses can meaningfully rely on in their efforts to comply with the CCPA and provide consumers with additional clarity about the collection, use, and sharing of their personal information. To that end, SIFMA requests that the Attorney General’s office delay enforcement of the CCPA until January 1, 2022, to allow for businesses to appropriately implement the complex systems of accepting, verifying, and responding to consumers’ requests in accordance with the regulations’ requirements.
