EDI transactions are required reports under Virginia Code Section 65.2-902.  The Commission’s EDI Compliance Initiative (now in its seventh year) is preparing to issue penalties for failure to file such reports.  Requests that will result in a penalty include, but are not limited to:

  • Failure to file initial FROI.
  • Failure to file initial SROI reporting payment previously ordered.
  • Failure to file transactions specifically requested by the Commission.

The penalty for each occurrence will be $250.00, beginning January 1, 2016, based on requests sent on or after July 1, 2015.  The Commission advises that there is a Penalty Order appeal process to the Deputy Commissioner.
