[arrow] Register of Interest
A register of interest is not available for this guideline. In line with the SIGN Document Retention Schedule (24/07/2010), after publication of this guideline, hard copies of declarations of interest were held at the SIGN Executive offices for one year. The declarations of interest were then archived for a further three years before being destroyed along with other guideline related documents. This schedule has now been revised.
