California Introduces Bill to Regulate Automated Decision Systems

On February 14, 2020, California State Assembly Member Ed Chau introduced the Automated Decision Systems Accountability Act of 2020, which would require any business in California that provides a person with a program or device that uses an “automated decision system” (“ADS”) to establish processes to “continually test for biases during the development and usage of the ADS” and to conduct an impact assessment on that program or device.

By March 1, 2022, businesses will be required to annually submit to the Department of Business Oversight a report that summarizes the results of their ADS impact assessments. If a change is made during the year, then the results of a new ADS impact assessment must be submitted within 60 days.
