The Forensic Examiner Creed


I do affirm that:

  • »  I shall investigate for the truth.
  • »  I shall report only the truth.
  • »  I shall avoid conflicts of advocacies.
  • »  I shall conduct myself ethically.
  • »  I shall seek to preserve the highest standard of my profession.
  • »  As a Forensic Examiner, I shall not have a monetary interest in any outcome of a matter in which I am retained.
  • »  I shall share my knowledge and experience with other examiners in a professional manner.
  • »  I shall avoid conflicts of interest and will continue my professional development throughout my career through continuing education, seminars, and other studies.
  • »  As a Forensic Examiner, I will express my expert opinion based only upon my knowledge, skill, education, training, and experience.
  • »  The light of knowledge shall guide me to the truth, and with justice the truth shall prevail.


To all these things, I affirm to uphold.
