The Applicant must file updated information to the Department within 30 days of any material change in the information required by 220 C.M.R. § 11.05(2).
II. Motion for Protective Treatment
Pursuant to 220 C.M.R. 1.04(5)(e), documents in the possession of the Department are presumed to be public records. To overcome this presumption and protect information from public disclosure, a party must file with the Department a written motion for a protective order. If no such motion is made at the time the record is filed with the Department, the Department may make the information available to the public without further notice.
The party moving for a protective order shall substantiate its motion, which shall be treated as a public record, with the following information:
- The time period for which confidential treatment is desired;
- The reason the record was provided to the Department, and the date of submittal;
- A precise description of the information to be protected;
- The reasons for the claim of confidentiality, including proof that an exemption to public disclosure applies;
- Proof of the harm of public disclosure;
- The extent to which the record or its contents has been disclosed to other persons or to federal, state and local agencies, including the status of any requests for confidentiality; and
- A certification to the best of the moving party’s knowledge, information and belief, that the information is not customarily available in the public domain.
In conjunction with a motion for protection from public disclosure, one unredacted copy of the materials for which protection is sought must be filed directly with the Hearing Officer. The unredacted copy should be submitted in a sealed envelope, clearly marked with the words “CONFIDENTIAL” on the outside of the envelope as well as on each page of the materials. A redacted copy of the materials, marked “REDACTED,” must also be filed for the public docket.
