Guidelines for Electrical Engineering Services Now Available

Posted on October 1, 2019

Engineers and Geoscientists BC has released updated guidelines designed to assist professionals who might be involved in, or have an interest in, providing electrical engineering services for building projects in BC. These guidelines apply to the practice of electrical engineering for buildings governed by Part 3 of the BC Building Code, the City of Vancouver Building Bylaw, or the National Building Code of Canada.

First published in 1993, and updated in 2019 to reflect current industry standards and practices, the Professional Practice Guidelines – Electrical Engineering Services for Building Projects (Version 2.0) provide a common level of expectation for various stakeholders with respect to the level of effort, due diligence, and standard of practice to be followed when conducting these projects. This 2019 revision reflects current industry standards and practices.

The updated guidelines cover topics such as project roles and responsibilities, guidelines for professional practice, and quality management. Engineers and Geoscientists BC expects that these guidelines will be revised and updated as required in the future, to reflect the developing state of practice.

These guidelines, and other professional practice guidelines and practice-related resources, are provided at
