Act on Trade Secrets Passed

The Danish Parliament has passed a new Act on trade secrets which brings together the regulation on trade secrets in Denmark.

The Act implementing the EU Directive on trade secrets has been unanimously enacted by the Danish Parliament. The Act entered into force on June 9, 2018.

The purpose of the new Act is to strengthen the protection of trade secrets, ensure aligned provisions across the EU and bring together the regulation on trade secrets in Denmark.

When the new Act entered into effect, the existing regulation in section 23 on trade secrets in the Danish Marketing Practices Act will be repealed. Employers should therefore consider changing any references to section 23 of the Danish Marketing Practices Act included in template contracts or other documents.
