The regulatory landscape in BC is changing and the upcoming implementation of the Professional Governance Act will introduce a new Code of Ethics for professional engineers and geoscientists. The changes in the new code are modest and generally consistent with our existing Code of Ethics; however, new principles have been introduced and some existing principles have been removed.

The regulatory landscape in BC is changing and the upcoming implementation of the Professional Governance Act will introduce a new Code of Ethics for professional engineers and geoscientists. The Professional Governance Act requires that each regulator under this legislation – including Engineers and Geoscientists BC, and the regulatory bodies for forestry, applied biology, agrology, and applied science technology – include a minimum of 12 standardized mandatory principles within their Code of Ethics for their registrants.

The changes in the new code are modest and generally consistent with our existing Code of Ethics; however, new principles have been introduced.

This webinar will provide registrants with an overview of the new Code of Ethics and will provide examples of how each principle applies in professional practice. It will also inform registrants about the forthcoming Guide to the Code of Ethics that will be available as a source to help registrants understand their obligations under the new code.
