Law on the Protection of Trade Secrets Adopted


The Law on the Protection of Trade Secrets has now been adopted by the National Assembly (Assemblée Nationale) and the Senate (Sénat) on June 14 and 21, 2018, to implementing the EU Directive 2016/493.

To ensure that the law complies with the French constitution, it has been validated by the Constitutional Council (Conseil constitutionnel) on July 26, 2008.

The law introduces a harmonised definition of trade secrets and a set of protective rules of a civil nature into the French Commercial Code (the "Commercial Code"), with several exceptions (Articles L. 151 – 1 to L. 154 – 1 of the Commercial Code).
