Occupational health nurses are permitted access to trade secrets. A new Appendix D is promulgated that ensures that the trade secret definition is interpreted and applied in accordance with state law and the public is fully apprised of the factors and principles considered when determining whether business information is trade secret. The final rule is effective on September 30, 1986. The nurses' access provisions are applicable October 30, 1986.
