703.52.    Redaction.

§ 703.51. Publication of orders.

 (a)  General rule. The Board will publish a redacted version of each final order, along with any dissenting opinion, that grants or denies in whole or in part a petition.

 (b)  Location of order publication. Published orders will be indexed and published on a publicly accessible web site maintained by the Board and accessible through the Board’s web site.

 (c)  Timing of publication. The Board will not publish an order for at least 30 days after the order’s mailing date to enable petitioner time to identify any trade secret or confidential proprietary information that needs to be redacted from the order.

§ 703.52. Redaction.

 (a)  Redaction of confidential information. Prior to publication of an order the Board will edit the order to redact the following:

   (1)  An individual’s Social Security number, home address, driver’s license number, personal financial information, home, cellular and personal telephone numbers, personal e-mail addresses, employee number or other confidential personal identification number and a record identifying the name, home address or date of birth of a child 17 years of age or younger.

   (2)  Specific dollar amounts of tax.

   (3)  Information identified by petitioner that meets the definition of a ‘‘trade secret’’ or ‘‘confidential proprietary information.’’ The petitioner is responsible for notifying the Board within 30 days of the mailing date of the order of any trade secret or confidential proprietary information that petitioner does not want to be published. The notification must clearly identify the language in the order that should be redacted, and the reason for the requested redaction.

   (4)  Other information determined by the Board to be confidential under State or Federal law.

 (b)  Confidential information in a published order. If, after an order is published, it is discovered that the published order contains confidential information that should not have been published, the Board should be notified as soon as possible and the Board will make every reasonable effort to redact the confidential information promptly.
