EMIS Help Pages

The NIH Ethics Management Information System (EMIS) is used by the NIH Ethics Community to track all ethics actions and to provide a means to report on the data.  The following EMIS instruction sheets  (pdf format) provide details for entering data for each action, instructions for creating reports, and instructions for administrative functions (not specific to an employee). Please note that some forms are entered by the employee in NEES, but data entry into EMIS is still required. These instruction sheets are being revised. If you find an error, please send a note as instructed at the bottom of this document.
