The Professional Governance Act requires Engineers and Geoscientists BC to regulate firms that engage in the practice of professional engineering or geoscience. Firms, including sole practitioners, will be required to register for a Permit to Practice with Engineers and Geoscientists BC beginning in July 2021.

The regulatory model is based on three pillars: quality management, continuing education, and ethics. Registrant firms will be required to have a representative attend training, and to have documented policies and procedures (also known as a Professional Practice Management Plan) in place that indicate how they meet the quality management, ethics, and continuing education requirements within 12 months of registering for a Permit to Practice.

Sole practitioners have unique needs compared to larger firms in fulfilling these requirements. Engineers and Geoscientists BC has taken this into account during the development of the Permit to Practice requirements and has developed Professional Practice Management Plan templates specific for both engineering and geoscience sole practitioners.

This presentation will briefly review the requirements of registering for a Permit to Practice, focus primarily on developing a Professional Practice Management Plan specific to sole practitioners using templates available, and address key questions heard from sole practitioners about the regulation.

For more information about the Permit to Practice requirements visit our website or view our recorded webinar entitled “Understanding Regulation of Firms”.
