It’s time to renew your registration for 2023. Here’s what you need to know to complete your renewal.
How do I Renew?
Renew your registration by signing into your Engineers and Geoscientists BC account, using your 6-digit User ID number and password, and pay your fees electronically or by mailed cheque. Individual registrants can renew their registration beginning November 16, 2022 and must renew by December 31, 2022.
For 2023, the individual registrant fee will be $470; the fee for non-practising/retired registrants is 25% of a practising registrant, or $117.50. Both fees exclude applicable taxes.
Registrants who have not paid their annual fee by December 31, 2022 will be subject to late fees, and those who have not renewed by January 31, 2023 will have their registration cancelled.
Impact of Renewals on Firms
Sole practitioners who do not renew by December 31, 2022, will have a condition prohibiting practice placed on their firm’s Permit to Practice. After a sole practitioner pays their fees, they must email [email protected] to remove the prohibition from their permit.
If you are the only a Responsible Registrant of a firm with multiple individual registrants on the roster with a Permit to Practice and you do not renew by December 31, 2022, a condition prohibiting practice will be placed on the firm’s Permit to Practice. After the Responsible Registrant pays their fees, they must email [email protected] to remove prohibition from the firm’s permit.
The 2022 renewal deadline also applies to registrants who submit their 2022 annual renewal invoice to their employers for payment. Please allow enough time for your employer to process your renewal. To learn more, visit the Fees page.
