The California Department of Justice sent informational letters in April 2015 to companies that may be subject to the disclosure requirements. See a redacted copy of the letter.

The act applies to companies doing business in California that have annual worldwide gross receipts totaling more than $100 million and which identify themselves on their California tax return as a retail seller or manufacturer.
