Trade Secrets Regulations Came into Force

On June 9, 2018, the UK’s Trade Secrets Regulations 2018 (SI 2018 No. 597) came into force. The Trade Secret Regulations implement into UK law the EU Directive on the protection of undisclosed know-how and business information (trade secrets) against their unlawful acquisition, use and disclosure ((EU) 2016/943) (“the EU Directive”). Subject to any change of policy by the Government, the Regulations will remain in force in the UK after Brexit.
