Title 18 : Health


(Cite as: 18 V.S.A. § 1778)
  • § 1778. Confidentiality

    Information submitted to or acquired by the Department or the Chemicals of High Concern to Children Working Group under this chapter may be subject to public inspection or copying or may be published on the Department website, provided that trade secret information and confidential business information shall be exempt from public inspection and copying under 1 V.S.A. § 317(c)(9), and information otherwise designated confidential by law shall be exempt from public inspection and copying under 1 V.S.A. § 317(c)(1). It shall be the burden of the manufacturer to assert that information submitted under this chapter is a trade secret, confidential business information, or is otherwise designated confidential by law. When a manufacturer asserts under this section that the specific identity of a chemical of high concern to children in a children’s product is a trade secret, the Commissioner shall, in place of the specific chemical identity, post on the Department’s website the generic class or category of the chemical in the children’s product and the potential health effect of the specific chemical of high concern to children. (Added 2013, No. 188 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. June 10, 2014.)
