Washington State Privacy Act: Is the 3rd Time the Charm?

Updated April 12, 2021 at 11:30am: Sunday night's House session ended without a vote on the Washington Privacy Act. The House proposed twenty-five amendments to the bill that weren't debated prior to the end of the session, not allowing for a vote. At this time, it is unclear if the bill will still be under consideration. We will update as we learn more. 

The state of Washington has made alterations to the proposed consumer privacy act, SB 5062, in the hopes that it can be the latest privacy legislation to pass. Previous attempts to pass the Washington Privacy Act have been halted due to disagreement on the limited private right of action. In an effort to compromise, adjustments have been made to that portion of the bipartisan bill.

Who is in charge, here?

When it comes to privacy regulation enforcement it can be tricky to understand who is leading the charge.  Each regulation handles things individually.  Let's take a look at those who govern two key regulations: the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act).

 

GDPR = ICO

The GDPR is enforced by a local ICO, or Information Commissioner's Office, in each area.  These offices have local authority and are able to incorporate other localized laws and regulations or interpretations.

 

As an example, the Information Commissioner’s Office in the UK provides a variety of resources that explain the changes caused by the GDPR and help organizations comply with its requirements. Visit their website for all kinds of handy info: https://ico.org.uk

 

CCPA = Attorney General

In California, the Attorney General's office is key in managing the implications of the CCPA. Visit their website to learn more: https://www.oag.ca.gov/privacy/ccpa
