Confidential Business Information (Trade Secrets)
Confidential business information (CBI) refers to specific product information that suppliers or employers who are manufacturers are permitted to withhold from an MSDS or label for a period of three years. In the United States, CBI may be called trade secrets or proprietary information. Under WHMIS, a supplier can make a request to the Hazardous Materials Information Review Commission (HMIRC)
to protect certain information that gives a company an economic advantage over competitors.
