9. Implementing Conflict of Interest Management in Health and Labour Sciences Research

The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare issued Guidelines on Conflict of Interest Management in Health and Labour Sciences Research (hereinafter referred to as "Guidelines") on March 31, 2008.

The Guidelines specify that institutions receiving Health and Labour Sciences Research Grants (HLSRG) are obliged to implement conflict of interest management by establishing a Committee for Overseeing Conflict of Interest. They also specify that this committee must be instructed to make efforts to improve the system and regulations. Institutions that do not establish such a committee will no longer be eligible for HLSRG.

Conflict of interest management is also necessary for a portion of commissioned research in the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED).

Therefore, Osaka University will implement conflict of interest management as follows:

1. Intended for:

(1) Faculty or staff at the university who are involved in research in the Health, Labour and Welfare Ministry and the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED) that COI management based on the above guidelines has deemed necessary, and

(2) Collaborators in subsidized research led by university faculty or staff and those who belong to an organization that has no COI committee specified in Guidelines IV. 3.

2. Submission period:

From the start of application of project proposal until the time of submission of an application form or until the conclusion of a consignment contract regardless of if the project is new or continued.

3. Documents to be submitted
