[author: Sheva Sanders]

The Vermont attorney general is offering limited amnesty to manufacturers of medical devices and biologics whose obligation to comply with the Prescribed Products Gift Ban and Disclosure Law began on or after July 1, 2009, but who failed to report their activities in any of the following reporting periods: FY10 (7/1/09-6/30/10), FY11 (7/1/10-6/30/11) or 2011 (7/1/11-12/31/11).

According to the attorney general, this offer is limited to amnesty from the financial penalties the attorney general is authorized to seek under the law for failure to report, and does not apply to back-payment of registration fees or penalties for other violations of the law, such as gift ban violations.

This offer will remain open until October 1, 2012. In order to take advantage of the offer, manufacturers must e-mail on or before October 1 with the following information:

  • Manufacturer name
  • Reporting period(s) for which the manufacturer failed to report.
  • Name, physical address, e-mail address and phone number of person with whom the office should communicate about the unreported activity.

Refer to the attorney general office's website for more information about the Prescribed Products Gift Ban and Disclosure Law. You may e-mail with questions about this offer. Please be aware that it might take up to a week to receive a reply to your e-mail from the attorney general.
