Massachusetts DIA Announces New Procedure For Conference Submissions

On Behalf of | Jul 5, 2017

The Massachusetts Department of Industrial Accidents has implemented a new procedure and time frame for introducing exhibits at the Conference level. All medical and non-medical exhibits are included in this new process.

Parties to a conference must now submit all exhibits electronically at least 48 “business” hours prior to a conference. If there exists an exhibit that is preferred to NOT be submitted prior to the conference, that particular exhibit can be an additional submission after-the-fact.
However, the majority of the submissions must be submitted prior to the conference in accordance with the new regulations.

This new procedure will require that all submissions which are to be included and presented at the conference should be sent to our attention at least one week before the conference.

The DIA has published a tutorial on this new process, which can be found here.

As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding this new procedure.
