Competition Appeal Tribunal Direction 1/2024 from the President sets out the general approach to be taken with respect to managing issues related to CONFIDENTIALITY RINGS, whereby the disclosure of  documents which contain SENSITIVE INFORMATION is restricted to specified individuals, usually external or in-house legal representatives or other external advisors or experts.  The Direction applies where the first Case Management Conference in a case, at which a Confidentiality Protocol should be provided,  takes place after 4 January 2024. That approach “permits a degree of pragmatism”. The population of documents for which confidential treatment is sought should be reduced to a “minimum”.
