On Friday, October 11, 2019, the California Governor signed all five of the California Consumer Privacy Act amendments that were awaiting his signature as well as an amendment to California’s data breach law.

The IAB Tech Lab released version 1.0 of the technical specifications for the IAB CCPA Compliance Framework, and is encouraging digital property owners and ad platforms to begin their technical implementation efforts. The Framework supports compliance with the CCPA for the digital advertising ecosystem. The IAB CCPA Industry Compliance Framework Draft was in public comment until November 5th. The finalized specifications have been updated, and the IAB Tech Lab working group has developed a roadmap for continued iteration.

The rollout plan includes:

  • V1.0 of the tech specs for the IAB CCPA Compliance Framework were released, November 18, and available for immediate adoption by publishers and tech companies.
  • Minor iteration of the tech specs - including the consumer data deletion request feature and other minor additions - complement the final release of the IAB CCPA Compliance Framework and Limited Service Provider Agreement
  • As needed, the IAB will continue to iterate the tech specs based on new needs and potential adjustments to the CCPA regulations - as the California Attorney General may make some changes after the public comment phase ends on December 6 and once the law takes effect on January 1, 2020.
