Ottawa, ON (May 24, 2016)

The Secretariat on Responsible Conduct of Research held its first consultation on the proposed changes to the Tri-Agency Framework: Responsible Conduct of Research (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.

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.
