All researchers, which are defined as anyone responsible for the design, conduct or reporting of research whether funded or unfunded, must complete an annual disclosure each fall. Throughout the year, the existence and nature of significant financial interests may change. Within thirty days of a change in the status of any significant financial interest or the addition of a new significant financial interest, a new disclosure must be completed. The following are examples of changes that should be reported:
- A new significant financial interest
- Change in the type of financial interest (i.e. reduction in stock, additional compensation)
- Elimination of financial interest
Once you have determined there is a change to your financial interest, please return to Step 1: Completing a Disclosure which details how you may complete a new disclosure that will replace the annual disclosure you created previously.
