While audits of registrant firms is a proactive process, practice reviews of registrant firms are reactive. Practice reviews tend to be more technical in nature and may focus on specific processes, areas of practice, or project(s)/work.
A practice review of a registrant firm may be authorized by the Audit and Practice Review Committee, the Registrar, or the Investigation Committee if information obtained through an audit, a complaint, a practice review, or an investigation indicates that the registrant firm might have contravened the Professional Governance Act, the regulations, or the Bylaws.
Additional information will be provided once the new bylaws and regulations under the Professional Governance Act are finalized. Engineers and Geoscientists BC will be providing comprehensive guidance documents to assist registrant firms in understanding the practice review process.
