Registrants report their information by completing a 5-step process from their Engineers and Geoscientists BC online account.

Annual Reporting Requirements

All registrants are required to complete Annual Reporting, including non-practising and retired registrants, by June 30 of each year. Registrants whose licence was issued after the reporting period opened on May 1 will not complete the annual reporting for the current year.

Step 1: Information

  • 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. This requirement is mandatory, and registrants should review this email account on a regular basis.

Step 2: Demographics (Optional)

  • Voluntary self-identification questions.

The purpose of these questions is to collect information to assist us in reporting and measuring the success of existing equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives, and in designing new measures and identifying new actions that will help achieve greater equity, diversity, and inclusion within the professions. To learn more, visit the Demographic Data webpage.

Step 3: Declarations

  • Declaration of criminal convictions or disciplinary action in the past year.

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.

Step 4: Continuing Education

  • Report on 1-year Continuing Education requirements; and
  • Report on 3-year Continuing Education requirements (starts in 2024).

Step 5: Review

  • Review and submit.

How to Report

Registrants can complete their Annual Reporting after May 1, 2022 by logging onto their Engineers and Geoscientists BC online account and clicking on Annual Reporting on the top left side of the page.

Suspensions and Cancellations

Registrants who fail to report their information before the September 30 and December 31 deadlines are subject to suspension and cancellation.

Registrants who have had their registration suspended or cancelled are prohibited from engaging in professional engineering or geoscience in BC and from representing themselves as practicing engineers or geoscientists in BC during the period of their suspension or cancellation. In addition, suspended and cancelled registrants are no longer covered under the Secondary Professional Liability insurance policy.

A registrant who engages in the practice of professional engineering or geoscience in BC while their registration is suspended or cancelled is subject to disciplinary action by Engineers and Geoscientists BC.

Change of Contact Information

If your contact information or practice-related information changes after you have submitted your Annual Reporting, you will need to log onto your account and update your information within 30 days of the change taking place.
