Individual Compliance Audit Exemption Form

Please only fill out this form if you received an email notification stating that you have been randomly selected for a compliance audit.

Registrants on a leave of absence or having other extenuating circumstances which prevent them from undergoing a compliance audit are eligible to submit a request for exemption. Registrants who hold a Sole Practitioner Permit to Practice with Engineers and Geoscientists BC, or are employed by a Registrant Firm that has undergone a compliance audit in the previous 12 months with an in-compliance result are also eligible to submit a request for exemption. Non-practising status and retirement are not acceptable reasons for audit exemption.

Registrants who have been randomly selected for a compliance audit can request an exemption by completing the application form below. Registrants must provide as much detail as possible to outline the reason for an exemption.

Registrants can expect an answer to the outcome of their exemption application within 30 days of receipt, unless the request is being reviewed by the Audit and Practice Review Committee, in which case the Rregistrant will be informed of an estimated response date by the Committee.
