Declaration of Interest and Confidentiality Undertaking (DOICU)

Home  /  Declaration of Interest and Confidentiality Undertaking (DOICU)

EUnetHTA has developed a Procedure Guidance for handling the Declaration of Interest and Confidentiality Undertaking (DOICU) form. This form is designed to specifically address conflict of interest (COI) and assist in the decision-making process concerning the involvement of individuals in EUnetHTA JA3 activities, whether as internal (EUnetHTA task) representatives or as external experts, based on a transparent assessment of interests declared within the form.

EUnetHTA is respsonsible for the creation and maintenance of a database for completed DOICU forms that relate to EUnetHTA activities, and for informing individuals of the status of relevant DOICU submissions in terms of form expiry and the need, where required, to resubmit or update forms.

Current versions of both the EUnetHTA Procedure Guidance for handling Declaration of Interest and Confidentiality Undertaking, and the step-by-step template form, are available here:
