Comments on the Proposed Revisions to the RCR Framework

Consultation - January 2016 to April 2016 (closed)

The Secretariat held its first consultation on the proposed changes to the 2nd edition of the RCR Framework from January 8, 2016 to April 8, 2016. 24 sets of consultation comments have been posted online to promote the transparency of this public engagement process. Comments are posted in the language in which they were received.

The Panel on Responsible Conduct of Research and the Secretariat appreciate the thoughtful responses submitted by Canada’s research community. This valuable feedback will now be taken into careful consideration as they prepare recommendations to the federal research Agencies (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC) that are responsible for approving revisions to the RCR Framework.
