Following in the footsteps of California, Virginia and Colorado, Utah became the fourth state to pass comprehensive consumer data privacy legislation. The Utah Consumer Privacy Act (“UCPA”) was signed into law on March 24, 2022 and takes effect on December 31, 2023. The swift and unanimous passage of a complex, comprehensive data privacy law would be remarkable under any circumstance, but the UCPA’s rapid enactment is particularly noteworthy given the number of state law proposals that remain bogged down or that died already this year. While bills are still alive in some other states, Utah is the first major state law domino to fall in 2022 and the first state to enact comprehensive data privacy legislation since Colorado in July 2021.
