Understanding the Regulation of Firms

Video Length: 01:00:00

Date Recorded: February 17, 2021

The Professional Governance Act will come into force in early 2021, and, with the implementation of the new Act, Engineers and Geoscientists BC will receive the legislative authority to regulate engineering and geoscience firms in British Columbia.

Mandatory firm regulation will begin in July 2021. The regulatory model is based on three pillars: quality management, continuing education, and ethics. This webinar will cover the requirements in the Professional Governance Act, Regulations, and bylaws, and how Engineers and Geoscientists BC will support registrant firms in meeting the Permit to Practice requirements.
