Conflict of interest register and management

Working Party Members were asked to declare in writing, any interests relevant to the guideline development, prior to commencement. Members were asked to update their information if they became aware of any changes to their interests.

All declarations were added to a register of interests as listed below. The register was made available to the Working Party throughout the development of the guideline, allowing members to take any potential conflicts of interest into consideration during discussions, decision making and formulation of recommendations.

If Working Party Members were identified as having a significant real or perceived conflict of interest, the Chair could decide that the member either leave the discussion whilst the specific area they were conflicted in was discussed or the member could remain present but not participate in the discussion, or decision making on the specific area where they were conflicted. There were no instances where this occurred during the development of this guideline.
