Detail of feedback received
There were 19 responses to the consultation. The government would like to thank all those who responded.
The Trade Secrets Directive seeks to address the uneven protection of trade secrets across the EU. It provides minimum standards for measures, procedures and remedies that holders of trade secrets can rely on in cases of unlawful acquisition, use, or disclosure.
The government has launched a technical consultation on draft regulations to transpose the Directive into UK law. The government is seeking stakeholders’ views on the approach taken in the regulations.
