5. Conflicts of Interest Management

Conflict of interest management at Osaka University shall be carried out through the following methods, #1 and #2.

1. Management through a self-report

Self-reports on conflict of interest management

A self-report should be submitted once a year. Under the Article 1 of the Regulations on Conflict of Interest, officers, full-time and part-time faculty members, including researchers working regular hours, must submit primary self-reports. Those working irregular hours may also submit them.

Under the guidance of a conflict of interest adviser, faculty members including researchers may submit secondary self-reports as needed.

  1. In principle, a self-report should be submitted once a year. There are two steps for self-reports: primary and secondary. Primary self-report forms will be distributed initially. Even if the questions on the form are not relevant to your situation, submit the form.
  2. A secondary self-report form is distributed to faculty and staff who answered "Yes" to items subject to conflict of interest in the primary self-report form.
  3. If you do not hear from us, you are not considered to be involved in a conflict of interest at this time. Please note that we will not inform you of the examination results.
  4. Detailed examination will be conducted if additional information is required.
