Unable to unlock Bit locked drive in Windows 10 using recovery password when FIPS 140 compliance is enabled

We are working based on project requirement to create a bitlocker recovery tool to unlock and disable the bit locker with the recovery password. In normal machines the tool is working but when we use the recovery password in machines where the GPO called "Security Settings --> Local Policies --> Security Options --> System Cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing and signing" is used, the recovery password found to be invalid and ends up with error "ERROR: The password failed to unlock volume".

We got the basic idea about why the policy is used and how it affects bit locker recovery password. Is there any solution to bypass the policy or to unlock bit locked drive using recovery password, when this policy is enabled. Any help would be appreciated.
