FICS Ethics Policy

The International Federation of Sports Chiropractic / Fédération Internationale de Chiropratique du Sport (FICS) and each of the affiliated Chiropractic Sports Councils and their participating members (hereinafter known as “Members”) wishing to participate in FICS related sporting events restate their commitment to the FICS Statutes.  At all times the FICS and its affiliated parties and, the participants, undertake to respect and ensure respect of the code of ethics. 

 

Conflict of Interest

FICS members and volunteers must meet high ethical standards in order to merit the trust of the chiropractic profession, its stakeholders and the wider public. The integrity of FICS depends on ethical behaviour throughout the organisation and, in particular, on fair, informed decision-making. The ability to make a decision is sometimes affected by other interests of individuals in the organisation.  The objective of this policy is to permit FICS to manage conflict of interest situations successfully and resolve them fairly.

Refund Policy

Members who register for a FICS course, workshop or seminar occasionally change their mind for one reason or another. Regardless of the reason, we believe there should be a definite refund policy for members who decide not to take the course. Refunds are only given under the following circumstances:
