This webinar will provide a high-level overview of the Professional Practice Guidelines: Professional Services in the Forest Sector - Crossings, Version 3. This revision to the guidelines was published on December 15, 2021, and were prepared jointly by Engineers and Geoscientists BC and the Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP), with funding provided by the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development. The work on the revisions was led by a task force of members of the Engineers and Geoscientists BC/ABCFP Joint Practice Board.

These guidelines were first published in 2005 and were recently updated to reflect current industry standards and practices and to reference the Professional Governance Act. In particular, this revision provides additional clarity on:

  • Responsibilities of the Coordinating Registered Professional (CRP) and Professional of Record (POR);
  • Use of hydrology and hydraulics during the design process;
  • Climate change considerations;
  • Requirements of site surveys; and
  • Skill sets required of CRPs and PORs.

This revision also adds a professional statement for transferring responsibility between CRPs.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the role, scope, and applicability of professional practice guidelines in general, and these guidelines specifically;
  • Become aware of why these guidelines were updated;
  • Understand the roles, responsibilities, and required skill-sets of CRPs, PORs, and specialists;
  • Understand the professional practice considerations for professionals throughout the planning, design, and construction of forest crossings; and
  • Understand quality management requirements and considerations for forest crossing projects.
