HHS Issues New Regulations on FCOI Disclosure in Research

New U.S. Department of Health and Human Services regulations concerning financial conflicts of interest (FCOI) in research took effect on August 24. As of that date, any new or renewing grant, contract, Institutional Review Board (IRB) or Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) submission will not be processed unless all investigators associated with the submission meet the new requirements.

There are four significant areas of change from the previous requirements:

  • An increase in the extent of information investigators must disclose to institutions

  • Institutions are required to provide investigators with FCOI training

  • An increase in FCOI-related information that institutions must make accessible to the public and to sponsors

  • Enhanced institutional responsibility for managing the disclosure process and identified FCOIs

The National Institutes of Health Office of Extramural Research has a resource page on FCOIs, including “Frequently Asked Questions and Answers,” which can be accessed at

Investigators can complete their training requirement by taking the on-line NIH course on federal FCOI regulations:

NOTICE:  As the new required consent template has HIPAA language built in, the HIPAA form is no longer necessary.  You will only have subject sign Consent form only.

The Program for the Protection of Human Subjects (PPHS) office has released an updated  informed consent template for immediate use.

As of October 1, 2014, use of the updated document (version date 9/2/14) becomes mandatory.

  • For initial submissions to the IRB, the updated version of the  Informed Consent Template is required

  • For continuation submissions, the updated version of the Continuing Review form, and Informed Consent Template are required (this means, the currently approved consent document must be transferred over to the latest version (9/2/14))

  • For Amendment submissions, the updated version of the Amendment form and the Informed Consent Template are required (this means, the currently approved consent document must be transferred over to the latest version (9/2/14)). If there are changes to the New Protocol Application, the 9/2/14 version must be used.

All projects will transition to the new form set over the next year.

If you have any questions regarding these changes, please contact Robert Jordan at or by phone at 212-979-4447.
