Trade Secret Protection

Information submitted to DTSC under a claim for trade secret protection will not be disclosed to any unauthorized party without DTSC’s review of the associated trade secret claim (California Code of Regulations, title 22, §§ 69509 and 69509.1). If, upon review, DTSC determines that a trade secret claim is not supported by the documentation provided by the party asserting trade secret protection, DTSC will provide notice to the submitter by certified mail of DTSC’s determination that the information will be considered a public record subject to disclosure by DTSC thirty (30) days after such notice is mailed. During this 30-day period, the submitter may seek judicial review by filing an action for preliminary injunction and/or declaratory relief. For more information about submitting a claim for trade secret protection, and DTSC’s review of such claims, please refer to the California Code of Regulations, title 22, §§ 69509 and 69509.1.
