Dear Colleague: We are pleased to provide an official statement from the International Association of Arson Investigators’ Board of Directors, which was passed unanimously on December 5, 2015. This document provides a strong statement of concern about some past arson convictions that are believed to have been based on outdated science or methodology. It offers the IAAI’s support to government agencies that choose to engage in the review of questioned arson convictions to assure that they are based on appropriate methodology and current fire science. The IAAI is willing to support all government agencies in developing and creating a Scientific Review Panel of their own. If you have questions regarding our offer of assistance in regard to the use and development of Multidisciplinary Science Review Panel, please do not hesitate to contact our office. Daniel P. Heenan President, 2015-2016 International Association of Arson Investigators IAAI - Global Leaders In Fire Investigation
