Upcoming Changes to Financial COI Policy – Part 2

The U.S. Public Health Service (PHS), which includes the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has revised their Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) Regulations. SBU’s University Policy (P209) must be in compliance with the revised regulations as of August 24, 2012. Consistent with SBU’s prior handling of this regulatory requirement, some of these changes will impact all investigators, and others will be specific to investigators submitting to, or awarded funds from, PHS (including NIH).

Details concerning the upcoming changes may be found on our new COI Web page:

Frequently Asked Questions for SBU Investigators:

* Who has to comply,
* What training has to be done,
* When the training has to be done, and
* How to meet the new training requirement.

New questions and answers to our Frequently Asked Questions Web page have been added:

They are:
* When do I, as an investigator, need to file a disclosure?
* What information do I, as an investigator, have to disclose?
* What are significant obligations?
* What are significant financial interests?
* What does ‘Institutional Responsibilities’ mean?
* What does ‘…reasonably appears to be related to your institutional responsibilities’ mean?
* Are there any exceptions to what constitutes a significant financial interest?
