Conflict of Interest

Inspectors must agree to comply with FACT’s Conflict of Interest Policy and document their agreement by completing the FACT Annual Compliance survey. If you feel that you have a potentially significant conflict of interest as an inspector, you must recuse yourself from the inspection. Examples of potential conflicts include a close working relationship with the applicant’s personnel, potential competition for referrals, and/or funding or contracts. Details of the nature of the conflict do not have to be provided to FACT. Bear in mind that each applicant has the right to refuse inspectors selected by the FACT Accreditation Office for any perceived conflict of interest. The FACT Accreditation Office will make every effort to ensure potential conflicts are resolved well in advance of the scheduled date of the inspection visit. Please assist the FACT Accreditation Office by recusing yourself as soon as you determine a conflict exists.
