§ 563. Confidential records; penalty

(a) Confidential records. Any records or other information furnished to or obtained by the secretary concerning one or more air contaminant sources, which records or information, as certified by the owner or operator, relate to production or sales figures or to processes or production unique to the owner or operator or which would tend to affect adversely the competitive position of the owner or operator, shall be only for the confidential use of the secretary in the administration of this chapter, unless the owner or operator shall expressly agree to their publication or availability to the general public. Nothing herein shall be construed to prevent the use of the records or information by the secretary in compiling or publishing analyses of summaries relating to the general condition of the outdoor atmosphere: provided that the analyses or summaries do not identify any owner or operator or reveal any information otherwise confidential under this section.

(b) Penalty. A person who knowingly violates this section shall be fined not to exceed $100.00. (1967, No. 310 (Adj. Sess.), § 13; amended 1971, No. 212 (Adj. Sess.), § 3.)
