Standards & Guidelines

APEGA’s professional practice standards and guidelines explain in detail the roles and responsibilities of Professional Members. They also inform the public about what to expect from APEGA Professional Members.

A professional practice standard establishes a minimum standard of practice that Members and Permit Holders must comply with in their professional practice. Practice standards are reviewed every three years for continued relevance and in keeping with acceptable industry standards.

A professional practice guideline provides guidance to aid Members and Permit Holders in their professional practice and may include recommended best practices.

The Practice Standards Committee develops and publishes these documents with the support and input of APEGA staff and Members.

The Committee and staff also help other regulatory bodies develop and revise codes, standards, and regulations that involve the practice of the professions.
