Colorado AG’s Rulemaking Aims to Make Privacy Act Compliance Less Rocky with Focus on Efficiency and Harmonization

May 03, 2022 (1 min read)

Colorado became the third U.S. state to adopt a comprehensive privacy law by enacting the Colorado Privacy Act (CPA) in July 2021. Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser recently related five principles that will govern upcoming rulemaking: (1) promoting consumer rights; (2) clarifying ambiguities to minimize unnecessary disputes; (3) facilitating efficient and expeditious compliance; (4) harmonizing and facilitating interoperability of the CPA with other frameworks; and (5) allowing for innovation and avoiding undue burdens on creativeness. Check out this practice note for essential compliance considerations, including an overview of the scope, key terms, rights granted, obligations imposed, and enforcement measures available.
