Changes in the policy on Certificates of Confidentiality went into affect on

October 1st, 2017

This Policy applies to all biomedical, behavioral, clinical, or other research funded wholly or in part by the NIH, whether supported through grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, other transaction awards, or conducted by the NIH Intramural Research Program, that collects or uses identifiable, sensitive information.


Is your NIH funded study a 'clinical trial' that needs to be reported on ClinicalTrials.gov?

Make sure you are using the right definition. 

This is not a new policy, but if not correctly understood, may create current problems for your research.
