Annual Information Requirements
Annual information reporting is now overdue
Council has waived the $100 late reporting fee for 2021, however, registrants who do not update their information prior to September 30 will be suspended. If you have not yet completed your annual reporting requirements, your action is required.
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.
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.
We recognize this is a new requirement for registrants, and awareness of this process is still developing. Council has waived the $100 late reporting fee for 2021, however, registrants who do not update their information prior to September 30 will be suspended. Registrants who have not completed their annual reporting by December 31, 2021, will have their registration cancelled.
If your registration is cancelled, you will no longer be covered by the Secondary Professional Liability Insurance program provided by Hub International. In addition, if you hold insurance through any Engineers and Geoscientists BC sponsored registrant services, you should contact the service provider directly to determine coverage.
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.
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 are required to complete the annual reporting requirements to maintain their registration with Engineers and Geoscientists BC.
To complete your annual reporting requirement, retired and non-practising registrants must:
- Verify your mailing address, and a unique and personal email address;
- Confirm that the information is correct by ticking the checkbox;
- Declare if they have been the subject of a criminal conviction or disciplinary action in the past year and confirm your status as non-practising;
- Review your continuing education requirements for upcoming years; and
- Submit the completed form.
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.
