Members must not discuss any commercially sensitive information, including but not limited to information which is confidential to their own company and/or is relevant to the commercial strategy or activities of their company. This restriction applies during the formal meeting and in any discussions or exchanges around or relating to the meeting. Members are in the best position to judge what is commercially sensitive or confidential and so the primary responsibility for compliance lies with members. Failure to comply may have serious consequences for the individuals involved, their companies and the SWRI itself. Such consequences can include substantial fines and the imposition of criminal penalties including imprisonment.
