Reach: Competition and confidentiality issues

During the exchange of information in REACH SIEFs there may be instances where participants should be particularly careful, especially with not reveal confidential business information (CBI).

Companies want to preserve information, particularly when it involves confidential data.

In such cases, participants could consider several options, including screening the information that is shared, or granting restricted access to selected company staff (preferably with the signature of a confidentiality agreement), or the appointment of an independent Third Party or trustee.

If an agreement is not reached, the registrant can “opt out” with a view to submitting a separate registration.
