Confidential Business Information under TSCA

TSCA CBI Training - Document Management

You said: B.) Yes, the documents should have been secured. It's not a matter of trusting a good friend, it's a matter of what we are entrusted with as stewards of TSCA CBI documents. 

That's correct.

It's not a matter of whether you trust your friend or not. Your friend could accidentally obtain access to CBI documents without being cleared.

As stewards of TSCA CBI documents, we are under an obligation to ensure that there is no unauthorized access and that we follow all prudent measures to protect the integrity of that information.
