It’s almost time to renew your registration for 2022. Here’s what you need to know to complete your renewal.
How do I renew?
Individual registrants can renew their registration beginning November 15, 2021 and must renew by December 31, 2021. For 2022, individual registrant fees will increase by $10 to $460. The fees for non-practicing registrants will be reduced to $115 (25% of the fee for practising registrants). When the renewal period opens, registrants can renew their registration by signing into their Engineers and Geoscientists BC account at egbc.ca/Account, using their 6-digit User ID number and password and pay their fees electronically. The December 31, 2021, renewal deadline also applies to registrants who submit their 2022 annual renewal invoice to their employers for payment. Please allow enough time for employers to process renewals. Registrants who have not paid their annual fee by December 31, 2021 will be subject to late fees, and those who have not renewed by January 31, 2022 will be struck off the register.
What if I want to resign?
If you wish to resign your license with Engineers and Geoscientists BC, be sure to do so before December 31, 2021, to avoid being liable for renewal fees. Resignation can be completed by signing into your Engineers and Geoscientists BC account, or by contacting Engineers and Geoscientists BC directly.
Resigned registrants can reapply for registration according to the organization’s Return to Practice procedure. Engineers and geoscientists in training who reapply must comply with the Reinstatement Policy. Any outstanding annual registration fees, late fees, and associated administrative fees must also be paid before a registrant can be reinstated.
