Assembly Bill ('AB') 2273 for the California Age-Appropriate Design Code Act passed, on 11 August 2022, the Committee on Appropriations with amendments, and will now be considered in the State Senate.

In addition, the amended bill requires the conducting of a Data Protection Impact Assessment ('DPIA') before any new online services, products, or features are offered to the public, noting that the documentation of this assessment should be maintained as long as the online service, product, or feature is likely to be accessed by children. Furthermore, the amended bill states that any violations will be subject to an injunction and liable for a civil penalty of not more than $2,500 per affected child for each negligent violation or not more than $7,500 per affected child for each intentional violation. / @dataguidance
