Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. As with federal law, Georgia allows certain information to be considered confidential—and protected from disclosure—when being submitted to a state agency as a condition of a permit or regulation. Contact the specific state agency to which a submission is to be made in order to determine the current procedure for maintaining confidentiality.

However, most monitoring data and information needed by emergency workers (e.g., firefighters or hazmat teams) regarding chemical inventories will not be entitled to trade secret protection. Also, reports on amounts of stationary source emissions will not receive confidential status. State and other governmental agencies may obtain confidential information to enable them to administer and enforce the law.

The attorney-client privilege can be waived as a confidential communication if the client testifies on direct examination concerning the communication. For additional information on attorney-client privilege claims, see the national section AUDITS.

Administration and enforcement. The various state agencies are responsible for the administration and enforcement of procedures for maintaining confidentiality of trade secret information in Georgia.
