1. Commercial and financial interests

A ‘commercial interest’ is a relationship with an entity producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by healthcare professionals relating to the activities of ISBT.
Financial interests are relationships that are ongoing or have occurred within the past 12 months in which the individual has any financial benefit, e.g. a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g. stock or, stock options). This includes contracted research, speaker/lecturer fees, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, involvement in any other activities for which remuneration is received or expected.
An interest is defined by the nature of the relationship and not by the sum of money involved.
