Is the information obtained during the investigation or examination confidential?

Section 26 of the MTSA requires all employees and agents of DIFS to keep secret all facts and information obtained in the course of their duties, unless the person is required under law to report on, take official action concerning, or testify in any proceedings regarding a licensee. This does not prohibit the furnishing of information or documents to, any federal, foreign or out-of-state regulator agency with jurisdiction over a licensee and this section is not applicable to any disclosure made in the public interest by the Director, at his or her discretion.
