Study teams are required to follow their home institution’s policies for the reporting and management of potential conflicts of interest. The Reviewing IRB may impose additional requirements when reviewing a specific study.
Note: This article is applicable to non-federal Relying Institutions only. In the case of federal agency study teams, research personnel may be asked to provide an assurance that the agency has completed COI analyses and that the participation of agency research personnel is permissible and consistent with federal law. See the SMART IRB Agreement v2.0 FAQS as well as NIH's Guidance on the Conflict of Interest Policies of the NIH Intramural Research Program for more information.
