Law of July 30, 2018, on the Protection of Trade Secrets was published in the official journal on August 14, 2018 and entered into force on August 24, 2018.

This law implements Directive (EU) 2016/943 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2016 on the protection of undisclosed know-how and business information (trade secrets) against their unlawful acquisition, use and disclosure, which aims to harmonize and improve the protection of trade secrets in all the Member States of the European Union.
