TBC News September 1991"Membership organizations, such as the American Medical Association or the American Bar Association, do not certify the competencies of the membership that supports it financially, because this would pose serious conflict of interest issues.

We have not examined the ethical implications of certifying our own membership within RID. It benefits RID financially to certify as many members as possible- since certified members pay the highest dues- yet it may not be in the best interest of consumers and the profession as a whole."
