Engineers and Geoscientists BC has a formal policy for all decisions made by the Credentials Committee, formerly the Registration Committee, under the Professional Governance Act. A reconsideration of a decision is conducted by the Credentials Committee.

Application for Reconsideration of a Decision

Within 30 days of receipt of a decision made by the Credentials Committee, applicants may apply in writing to the Credentials Committee for a reconsideration. An applicant applying for a reconsideration of a decision must provide, in writing:

  • The decision of the Credentials Committee;
  • The reasoning as to why the applicant believes the decision of the Credentials Committee was flawed;
  • Any evidence that was not previously available or provided to the Credentials Committee that the applicant wants to submit for consideration
    •   Evidence must be provided within 60 days of submission of the application for reconsideration; and,
  • The relief sought by the applicant.

Please note that all applicable reconsideration fees must be submitted with the application in order to proceed with the reconsideration.

Outcomes of a Reconsideration of a Decision

The Credentials Committee will review the request and make a decision following reassessment of the application. Upon review, the Credentials Committee will either confirm the original decision or substitute its original decision.

After the Credentials Committee has considered the applicant’s application, it will provide its determination and reasons for the outcome to the applicant in writing. Only one application for reconsideration will be accepted related to a decision of the Credentials Committee. An applicant who is not satisfied with the reconsideration decision of the Credentials Committee may apply for a review on the record.   

How Much Does it Cost?

Please refer to the Fee Schedule for the reconsideration fee (within 30 days of receipt of the decision letter).
