The Professional Practice Guidelines - Legislated Riparian Area Assessments in British Columbia were prepared by a team comprising members of the College of Applied Biology (The College) and Engineers and Geoscientists BC, with input from the Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP), the BC Institute of Agrologists (BCIA) and the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC (ASTTBC). Technical and funding support for the guidelines was provided by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (FLNRO).

These guidelines were developed in response to issues raised with  conducting riparian assessments, including matters regarding the respective roles and responsibilities of various registered professionals involved in riparian assessments.

In 2014 FLNRO accepted a recommendation from the office of the Ombudsperson that professional practice guidelines be developed to provide guidance on conducting professional assessments under the Riparian Areas Regulation in a manner that meets the Qualified Environmental Professional’s (QEP) obligations under their respective professional legislation.

These guidelines have been written with the intention of guiding professional practice when carrying out riparian assessments pursuant to the Riparian Areas Regulation. They provide the basis for meeting an appropriate professional standard of practice when carrying out riparian assessments that are consistent with the regulation.  

Seminar Objective

  • Understanding methods to conduct Riparian Area Assessments in a manner that  meets Riparian Area Regulation requirements and QEP obligations under  professional legislation
  • Roles and responsibilities of various stakeholders involved in riparian assessment

Audience

  • Members of ABCFP, The College of Applied Biology, ASTTBC, BCIA and Engineers and Geoscientists BC involved  in Riparian Area Assessments
  • Municipalities that have adopted Riparian Area Protection bylaws
