The Professional Governance Act (PGA) requires registrants to verify their practice-related and contact information each year. Providing updated and accurate contact information will allow Engineers and Geoscientists BC to contact registrants about important regulatory information. Annual reporting is now mandatory and must be completed by June 30, 2021.
Annual reporting can be completed online through each registrant’s Engineers and Geoscientists BC account (at egbc.ca/app/Account/Annual-Information-Reporting). The 4-step process requires registrants to update or verify their employer (if applicable), mailing address, business contact information, and email address, and takes only a few minutes to complete. Registrants who fail to complete their reporting requirements by the June 30 deadline may be subject to late fees, suspension, or cancellation.
Unique Email Address
Under the PGA, registrants are also required to keep a unique and personal email address on file with Engineers and Geoscientists BC, to ensure that Engineers and Geoscientists BC can reach registrants with important regulatory information and updates.
Updating Information Within 30 Days of a Change
Finally, the PGA requires that registrants keep their contact information current with Engineers and Geoscientists BC. If registrant contact information or practice-related information changes, registrants must log into their account and update their information within 30 days of the change. Registrants that update their contact information outside of the annual reporting period will still be required to verify their contact information each year.
