  6. Major Changes to the Regulations Investigator Disclosure • all SFIs related to institutional responsibilities • institutions responsible for determining whether SFIs relate to PHS funded research and are FCOIs Philosophical shift – institution bears more responsibility in connecting the SFI to the proposed work Investigator Training • FCOI training required for Investigators before engaging in PHS-funded research, every 4 years thereafter, and immediately under designated circumstances (e.g., policy change).

  7. Major Changes to the Regulations Public Accessibility • FCOI policy must be available via a publicly accessible web site(or available to requestor within 5 business days). • Before spending funds for PHS-supported research, Institution must make public information on SFIs that it has determined are related to the PHS-funded research and are FCOI
