The "Professional Practice Guidelines - Mechanical Engineering Services for Building Projects" describes tasks that should be performed by Engineers and Geoscientists BC registrants so as to meet an appropriate level of expectation that fulfills the registrant's professional obligations under the Act and Bylaws. These obligations include the registrant's primary duty to protect the safety, health, and welfare of the public and the environment.

This revision was undertaken to provide an update that modernizes the guideline to the current expectations of practice, incorporating changes to mechanical engineering practice that have occurred since it was originally published in 1993. The revision provides additional clarity on the specific items related to mechanical engineering for building projects in the Letters of Assurance and discusses the roles and responsibilities of engineering professionals, specifically the Mechanical Engineer of Record, and other relevant parties.

The guidelines define the skill sets that are consistent with the training and experience required to carry out mechanical engineering services for building projects and describe how the intent of the seven quality management requirements under the Engineers and Geoscientists Act are to be met.
