Amendments in the Regulation on the Implementation of the Classified Information Protection Act (RICIPA) were adopted by the Council of Ministers
In the State Gazette 68/22nd August 2017 the amendments in the Regulation on the Implementation of the Classified Information Protection Act (RICIPA) adopted by the Council of Ministers were published.
The aim of the amendments is to establish a sub-legal framework which governs the terms and procedure for the implementation of Article 34 of the Classified Information Protection Act (CIPA). Thus an order is established which will guarantee that different measures for protection will not be applied to documents which require extension of the terms for protection. On the other hand the possibility of termless protection of classified information will be avoided as it is forbidden by the law.
The existing void in the sub-legal framework of the hypothesis created practical difficulties in ensuring the equal protection of classified information.
With the new procedures equal implementation of rules by all Organizational Entities will be guaranteed. This on one hand will contribute to the main purpose of CIPA i.e. not allowing unauthorized access and ensuring equal protection of classified information. On the other hand the new rules will relieve the Organizational Entities especially those in which there is a large volume of documents and materials containing classified information without this to affect the security of this information and will give possibility for strict observation of the terms after which expiration the information is declassified.
