The Utah Consumer Privacy Act (UCPA) was signed into law in March 2022, making Utah the fourth state within the United States to draft and adopt a comprehensive data protection regulation. The law shall come into effect on December 31, 2023.

The UCPA applies to any controller or processor who:

  1. conducts business in Utah or produces a product or service that is targeted to consumers who are residents of Utah;
  2. has annual revenue of $25,000,000 or more; and
  3. satisfies one or more of the following thresholds:
    1. during a calendar year, controls or processes personal data of 100,000 or more consumers; or
    2. derives over 50% of the entity's gross revenue from the sale of personal data and controls or processes the personal data of 25,000 or more consumers.

The Utah Attorney General has the exclusive authority to enforce the UCPA and can recover actual damages to the consumer in addition to a civil penalty of up to $7,500 for each violation.
