On September 19, 2012, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (“DPH”) amended the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Manufacturer Code of Conduct regulations (the “Code of Conduct”). The amended regulations modify the obligations of pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers by: (1) implementing recent changes to the governing statute; (2) eliminating certain disclosure requirements; and (3) clarifying manufacturer obligations with respect to registration and reporting non-compliance.

The revised Code of Conduct relaxes certain restrictions on interactions between manufacturers and health care practitioners.
