The Finnish parliament has approved a new Trade Secrets Act (FI: liikesalaisuuslaki) on Wednesday 27 June 2018. The Trade Secrets Act applies to business relationships as a general law and implements EU Directive 2016/943. The Trade Secrets Act along with the numerous legislation changes made in connection therewith bring the term ‘trade secret’ into extensive use in Finnish legal system. This term combines the earlier, fragmentally used different terms for trade secrets (FI: ammattisalaisuus, yrityssalaisuus) and uniforms their meaning. The Trade Secrets Act improves the protection of companies’ confidential information and available legal remedies for breaches of trade secrets. It includes provisions regarding i.a. the unlawful acquisition, use and disclosure of trade secrets. The statute also provides new civil remedies for breaches of trade secrets. Furthermore, the provisions of the Unfair Business Practices Act concerning the protection of trade secrets and technical instructions are repealed and transferred into the Trade Secrets Act. Nevertheless, the enactment of the Trade Secrets Act does not introduce significant changes to Finnish law.
