Conflicts Checklist

Training requirements? Check. Disclosure, review, and monitoring requirements? Check, check, and check.

The US National Institutes of Health has posted a checklist corresponding to its new rules for reporting financial conflicts of interest. "The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of the requirements of the 2011 revised FCOI [financial conflicts of interest] regulation to serve as a checklist resource when developing, revising or reviewing an Institution’s FCOI policy to determine compliance with all regulatory requirements," NIH says.

Beyond training, reporting, monitoring, and maintenance, the checklist also addresses enforcement mechanisms, and public accessibility requirements, among other things.
