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 RTC’s 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
organization’s service to its constituent public.
