One of the recommendations of the CMRG report includes "whistle-blower" protection, but only for private persons.
The CMRG proposed two de minimis exemptions (either that liability depend upon showing "substantial effects", or that the law establish a safe-harbour based on market share or turnover) in its interim report.

As the largest specialty retailer of big and tall men's apparel, CMRG has an extreme need to optimize localized assortment.
The QuantiSense solution is a central repository for merchandising intelligence across buyers, allocators, planners, store managers and our executive team," said Dennis Hernreich, COO and CFO of CMRG.
With 16 Destination XL stores opened by the end of 2011 and 35 more stores planned in 2012, CMRG has found a profitable formula and even gained industry recognition as MR Magazine's 2011 Retailer of the Year.
We've had a strong partnership with CMRG since we began working together in 2007, and we're excited to share the story of their success.
Using D2Explorer, a web-native analytics software solution, CMRG was able to analyze its medical and pharmacy data to identify, educate, and coach individuals within its population in need of care management interventions.
Verisk Health's D2Explorer solution has streamlined our care management process, allowing us to quickly identify patients in need of medical interventions," said Tom Wagoner, CEO of CMRG.
The clinical intelligence and predictive modeling within the D2Explorer solution allowed CMRG to achieve notable results for many of its clients, including an 18-percent drop in the number of diabetics/pre-diabetics over three years, a decreased number of emergency room visits and inpatient admissions, a lower per member/per year cost trend for certain disease states, and a 12% reduction in total healthcare costs.
