Below are our public policies. If you would like further information please reach out to us.
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.
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:
Workplace Health & Safety
FICS is committed to providing and maintaining responsible standards of Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) and to the prevention of injury and ill health of all persons under the control or direction of; the organisation, its volunteers, service providers and executive personnel.

Sponsors and Supporters support is paramount to FICS’ ability to continue to support the International Sporting Federations and increase the number of International Games, through the involvement of Sports Chiropractor teams at multisport games and events. This is to support the FICS vision “Every athlete to have access to sports chiropractic”. We achieve this through facilitating athletes’ access to sports chiropractic which involves the treating and preventing of athletes’ injuries naturally.
