- Personal contact information; and
- Business and registry contact information (not applicable for Non-Practising).
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.

A criminal conviction is an offence that is heard in court and would be accompanied by a sentence (fine, suspension of licence, seizure of vehicle, imprisonment, etc.). Traffic violations for which a person receives a ticket are not convictions and do not need to be reported.
