Principles of Professional Practice


ACFEI and its members are to remain completely objective and use their ability to serve justice by making an accurate determination of the facts involved.

ACFEI members are not advocates for one side or the other. Members should not intentionally withhold or omit any findings or opinions discovered during a forensic examination that would cause misinterpretation or distortion of the facts.

ACFEI members should not misrepresent or overstate their credentials, education, training, experience, or membership status.

ACFEI members are expected to refrain from any conduct that would be adverse to the best interest and purpose of ACFEI. Members are to be forever vigilant of the importance of their role and to conduct themselves only in the most ethical and professional manner at all times.
