Religious Technology Center (RTC) was formed in 1982 and received ownership of the trademarks from Mr. Hubbard. RTC thus became the church responsible for the protection of the religion and its public by ensuring to the standard application of Mr. Hubbard’s technologies, and ensuring that only authorized church organizations used the religious marks. As RTC is not part of the management structure of the Church and not involved in its day-to-day affairs, it is not subject to the daily exigencies of management and so can more effectively perform its functions.

Thus, while Church of Scientology International serves as the mother church, and is responsible for the overall ecclesiastical management, dissemination and propagation of Scientology and the various Churches of Scientology, Religious Technology Center serves as protector of the religion. While each Scientology organization and, indeed, every Scientologist is expected to enforce the standard application of Dianetics and Scientology, RTC is the final arbiter of orthodoxy.
