Appliances that could be damaged or cause unreasonable inconvenience if power is lost, should not be plugged into GFCI outlets.
GFCI's don't do well on circuits for motor driven appliances because they can become damaged by motor surges. Computers, security systems, and appliances like refrigerators, and freezers should not be plugged into GFCI outlets.
I was not aware of this.
Would you, as an inspector, put this into your report to your client?
