43 CFR 2.24 - Is a submitter required to designate information that is commercially or financially sensitive?

§ 2.24 Is a submitter required to designate information that is commercially or financially sensitive?
No. If in the course of responding to a FOIA request, a bureau cannot readily determine whether the information obtained from a person is commercially or financially sensitive information, the bureau will obtain and consider the views of the submitter of the information and provide the submitter an opportunity to object to any decision to disclose the information.
