Trade secrets were previously protected in the Marketing Act and in other laws, but as a consequence of the Trade Secrets Directive (TSD), the rules have largely been compiled into one law, the Trade Secrets Act. The Act represents a 'close to the text' implementation of the TSD and it does not contain rules that go further than the TSD.
The implementing legislation is the Trade Secrets Act (Law no. 309 of 25 April 2018). The Act was adopted on 25 April 2018.
The law entered into force on 9 June 2018, i.e. in compliance with the TSD.
