The Professional Practice Guidelines for Flood Mapping specify tasks that should be performed by Engineers and Geoscientists BC members so as to meet an appropriate standard of care that fulfills the member's professional obligations under the Engineers and Geoscientists Act. These obligations include the member's primary duty to protect the safety, health and welfare of the public and the environment.

The document will assist in delineating the roles and responsibilities of the various participants/stakeholders including the Engineers and Geoscientists BC Professional of Record having overall responsibility for the preparation of the flood map, clients, authorities having jurisdiction, and statutory decision makers.

The guidelines define the skill sets that are consistent with the training and experience required to carry out flood mapping. An assurance statement is provided to confirm that the appropriate requirements have been met (both regulatory and technical).

Finally, the guidelines describe how the intent of the seven quality management requirements under the Engineers and Geoscientists Act are to be met. This will include outlining expectations regarding peer review and independent checking.

Unique Features of the Course

The seminar will be given by one of the authors of the recently completed flood mapping guidelines.

Target Audience

Professional engineers or professional geoscientists qualified by training and/or experience to undertake and accept responsibility for carrying out flood mapping in British Columbia.
