The Professional Governance Act (PGA) came into force on February 5th and replaces the individual statutes of regulatory bodies that govern engineers and geoscientists, applied science technology professionals, applied biology professionals, foresters, and agrologists.
To help cultivate understanding of the PGA and its benefits, the Office of the Superintendent of Professional Governance (OSPG) will be hosting a webinar on April 13th from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm PDT. The webinar will cover several important topics, including:
- The role of the OSPG and the role of regulatory bodies
- The regulation of firms program of the Engineers and Geoscientists of B.C.
- Existing and proposed reserved practices for the professions governed under the PGA
- A new registrant and employer duty to report professional practice concerns
