Peer reviews are an important part of professional practice; however, confusion exists around the requirements and standard outcomes of peer reviews. Engineers and Geoscientists BC's recently published Professional Practice Guidelines on Peer Review establishes the roles and responsibilities regarding peer reviews and clarify obligations of engineering and geoscience professionals who conduct peer reviews, or are subject to peer review, within any discipline or area of practice. These guidelines clarify the differences between peer reviews, practice reviews and audits, independent reviews, checking, expert opinions, and other types of reviews.

Learning Objectives

Learn what your professional obligations are when completing a peer review, requesting a peer review, or when having your own work reviewed by another professional. Considerations for registrant firms involved in peer reviews are also included.

Key Takeaways:

What are my professional obligations when reviewing the work of another professional? Who determines the scope of a peer review? How is a peer review different from other types of reviews, such as regulatory reviews, independent reviews, and an expert opinion?

Target Audience

Professional registrants (any area of practice; engineering or geoscience).
