RELIGIOUS TECHNOLOGY CENTER
THE INSPECTOR GENERAL NETWORK
To preserve its objective oversight function, RTC is not involved in any way in the management of churches or in the actual ministry of Dianetics and Scientology to parishioners. Therefore, those responsibilities fall squarely on the shoulders of CSI, which supervises the ecclesiastical management of all Scientology churches, along with the dissemination and propagation of the religion.
RTC stands apart as an external body which protects the Scientology religion and acts as the final arbiter of orthodoxy. At the apex of this pivotal function is RTCs Inspector General Network, which operates from seven offices on four different continents. The duties and authority of an RTC Inspector General are much like those traditionally associated with the inspector general title in other organizations. Namely, an Inspector General investigates and corrects instances in which departure from a standard, policy or ethic could betray an organizations service to its constituent public.
