Certify Post-Meeting COI
Reviewers should electronically certify the Post Meeting Conflict of Interest form in IAR to confirm that they were not present during any discussion of an application with which they had a conflict.
The post-meeting COI certification must be electronically certified at the time reviewers complete their participation in the study section meeting. Paper certifications will no longer be accepted.
The post-meeting COI form will be available until the end of the Edit phase.
