Does the Council ever refuse to go on a site visit?

Q: Are there any cases when the COE refuses to conduct a site visit?
A: The Council can deny the request for a site visit to a college in a country where conditions exist that might place the safety of the site team members at risk. In the case of a consultative visit the Council can refuse to conduct the visit if, after reviewing the self-study material, it is determined that the college falls short of meeting one or more standards.
