Disciplinary Notice: Reo Phillips, P.Eng., Victoria, BC

Posted on August 6, 2019

Engineers and Geoscientists BC issued a Notice of Inquiry alleging that Mr. Phillips failed to provide the Practice Review Committee with documents required for a practice review. Instead of proceeding to a disciplinary inquiry, Mr. Phillips agreed to a Consent Order in which he was required to provide the requested information to the Practice Review Committee within 30 days of the date of the Consent Order and was required to pay $1,500 towards the association’s legal costs.

Engineers and Geoscientists BC issued a Notice of Inquiry in April 2019 to Reo Phillips, P.Eng., regarding his failure to provide the Practice Review Committee with the Practice Review Questionnaire, as requested by the association on numerous occasions. Instead of proceeding to a disciplinary inquiry, Mr. Phillips agreed to a Consent Order dated June 6, 2019.

In the Consent Order, Mr. Phillips admitted that he breached section 44 of the Engineers and Geoscientists Act, which states that a member, licensee, or certificate holder must, on request, provide the Practice Review Committee with any relevant information, record, document or thing, and may not refuse to comply with this request on the grounds of confidentiality.

As part of the Consent Order, Mr. Phillips agreed that, within 30 days from the date of the Consent Order, he will provide the association’s Practice Review Committee with a revised Practice Review Questionnaire, along with a detailed list of the roles and duties of his current position. Mr. Phillips also agreed to pay $1,500 towards the association’s legal and investigative costs within 30 days of the date of the Consent Order.

Mr. Phillips has since complied with all the provisions provided for in the Consent Order.
