Belgian Act on the Protection of Trade Secrets Adopted

The Belgian Act on the protection of trade secrets, implementing the EU Directive 2016/943 came into force on August 22, 2018.

It aims at protecting undisclosed know-how and business information (trade secrets) against their unlawful acquisition, use and disclosure. The Act introduces specific provisions on trade secrets in existing legislations (namely the Code of Economic Law, the Judicial Code and the Employment Contracts Act of 3 July 1978). Amongst other provisions, the Act introduces new legal actions and an increased protection of the confidentiality of trade secrets in the course of legal proceedings.
