403.73 Trade secrets; confidentiality.Records, reports, or information obtained from any person under this part, unless otherwise provided by law, shall be available to the public, except upon a showing satisfactory to the department by the person from whom the records, reports, or information is obtained that such records, reports, or information, or a particular part thereof, contains trade secrets as defined in s. 812.081(1)(c). Such trade secrets shall be confidential and are exempt from the provisions of s. 119.07(1) and s. 24(a), Art. I of the State Constitution. The person submitting such trade secret information to the department must request that it be kept confidential and must inform the department of the basis for the claim of trade secret. The department shall, subject to notice and opportunity for hearing, determine whether the information, or portions thereof, claimed to be a trade secret is or is not a trade secret. Such trade secrets may be disclosed, however, to authorized representatives of the department or, pursuant to request, to other governmental entities in order for them to properly perform their duties, or when relevant in any proceeding under this part. Authorized representatives and other governmental entities receiving such trade secret information shall retain its confidentiality. Those involved in any proceeding under this part, including an administrative law judge, a hearing officer, or a judge or justice, shall retain the confidentiality of any trade secret information revealed at such proceeding.
