APEGBC Licensing Issues Continue

An update on the issue affecting all new registrations for Professional Engineer Status in BC… 

The judge in the case agreed that the association had the right to assess the qualifications of those applying to be licensed as professional engineers and geoscientists, and he recognized that the province’s Engineers and Geoscientists Act permits the association to set the standards for granting licences. However, according to APEGBC, “what are deemed to be at fault are the lack of definition in what experience is necessary and the lack of articulation of these experience requirements in a bylaw.”

Apparently, this has some other engineering associations reviewing their processes to ensure that these comply with the relevant Act and Bylaw that governs their activities.
