Begin Application Process
By submitting their application, the applicant acknowledges that the IRF will apply the internal standards adopted by its Board to evaluate the applicant, and that it may reject any applicant who does not meet its minimum standards for certification. In consideration of the IRF’s acceptance and processing of an application, the applicant agrees to waive any and all claims of liability or responsibility against the IRF and to indemnify and hold harmless the IRF, its directors, officers, committee members, employees, agents and representatives against any and all such injury, damages, or claims made by or on behalf of any person, partnership, government, association, or corporation. The applicant further acknowledges that the IRF, its directors, officers, committee members, employees, agents or representatives are not liable to the applicant, or to any other person, partnership, government, association, or corporation, in any way for any injury, damages, or claims alleged to be based upon or arising out of the approval or disapproval or the issuance, withdrawal, or termination of any certification issued by the IRF.
The IRF reserves the right to change or amend the requirements for certification if and when deemed appropriate by the IRF. The IRF further reserves the right to revoke a certification if, in the opinion of the IRF, the person concerned has violated or shown flagrant disregard for the professional conduct and ethics that are incumbent to road safety audit team leaders.
Since the program is entirely voluntary, the IRF assumes no responsibility for any loss or disadvantage, real or imagined, which may be alleged to have resulted from a disapproval of an application for certification or revocation of the certificate once given.
