Law360, New York (October 30, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT) -- The General Court of the European Union recently delivered a judgment requiring the disclosure of proprietary information related to a pesticide ingredient. The court’s decision may affect companies that have previously provided proprietary information on chemicals to EU regulators with the expectation it would be protected from public disclosure.
The judgment may signal an expanded interpretation of EU disclosure requirements and an erosion of laws protecting proprietary information and has the potential to impact legislative and policy developments in the United States and in other jurisdictions.
