Annual Information Requirements

Annual information reporting is now open.

Under the Professional Governance Act (PGA), registrants have a number of annual information reporting requirements they must complete. This includes verifying your area of practice, keeping your contact information up to date, and declaring your Continuing Education hours.

Annual Reporting Requirements

Annually, registrants will need to verify certain practice-related information and contact information. This includes:

  • Your industry and area(s) of practice;
  • Your employer, if applicable; and
  • Your mailing address, business contact information, and a unique and personal email address.

Registrants will also be required to declare if they have been the subject of a criminal conviction or disciplinary action in the past year.

Registrants can complete their annual reporting requirements by logging onto their Engineers and Geoscientists BC online account and clicking on Annual Information Reporting on the top left side of the page.

For the 2021 reporting period, registrants must verify their information between May 3, 2021, and June 30, 2021. Registrants that fail to report their information may be subject to late fees, suspension, or cancellation.

Updating Contact Information

If your contact information or practice-related information changes at any time, you will need to log onto your account and update your information within 30 days of the change taking place. Contact information required to be updated within 30 days includes:

  • Your industry and area(s) of practice;
  • Your mailing address;
  • Your employer;
  • Your business contact information;
  • Your personal and unique email address; and
  • If you have been the subject of a criminal conviction or disciplinary action.

Registrants that update their contact information outside of the designated annual reporting period will still be required to complete the annual reporting requirements between May 3, 2021, and June 30, 2021.

Email Address

Registrants are required to keep a unique and personal email address on file with Engineers and Geoscientists BC. This ensures that Engineers and Geoscientists BC can reach you with important information and updates. Registrants should review this email account on a regular basis.

Retired and Non-Practising Registrants

Retired and non-practising registrants are required to complete annual reporting requirements to maintain their registration with Engineers and Geoscientists BC.

To complete your annual reporting requirement, retired and non-practising registrants must:

  • Write Retired or No longer practising in the Employer space in the Work Contact Information section;
  • Provide at least one of the following in the Work Contact Information fields: an address, phone number, or email address. These can be the same as the information provided in the Home Contact Information fields;
  • Toggle at least one of the completed Work Contact Information fields to show up on the public register. This is done under the Registrant Directory Information heading; and
  • Select one Industry of Practice and at least one Area of Practice. You can select the industry and area that you were practising in prior to your retirement.

Continuing Education Hours

Beginning in 2022, registrants will also need to declare their Continuing Education hours during the annual reporting period. Learn more about the new Continuing Education program.
