July 1, 2009
Massachusetts' new sales & marketing regulations took effect, July 1, 2009.

Under the regulations, Pharmaceutical or Medical Device Manufacturing Companies (PMDMCs) must track and report expenditures related to sales & marketing activities.

Today is the deadline for companies who fall under the purview of the statute to:
  • Certify compliance with a Code of Conduct
  • Submit information requested in Section 970.005 of the regulations (name of compliance officer, investigation policies, etc.)
  • Submit an annual fee of $2,000
All three of these requirements are addressed by completing the Code of Conduct Compliance Form found here.

The regulations stipulate that companies report sales & marketing activities taking place between July 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009 by July 1, 2010.
