Companies required to indicate confidential information

ANACOM decided, on 17 November 2011, that whenever information is provided to the Regulator, companies must clearly indicate the elements which must be treated as confidential, otherwise it will be concluded that all information submitted without such indication is not considered likely to reveal any commercial and industrial secrecy, or secrets related to the internal affairs of the company.

This indication must be substantiated, taking into account legal rules on access to documents held by the administration, namely the principles of publicity and transparency.

Where it is possible to remove the part subject to reservation, concerned bodies must attach, where appropriate, a non-confidential version of relevant documents.
