Draft Practice Standard: Relying on the Work of Others and Outsourcing

APEGA's Practice Review Board has authorized an extension of the deadline to submit professional feedback on the draft standard, Relying on the Work of Others and Outsourcing, to September 30, 2020. The feedback collected will be brought to a panel of subject matter experts for consideration before finalizing the content for Council approval.

We strongly encourage our licensed professionals and permit holders to take the time to review the material on the website (below) and submit their feedback through the form and survey provided. Participation is a vital step in the development of practice standards and is an important part of self-regulation.

The draft standard details the requirements APEGA licensed professionals and permit holders must comply with when outsourcing and relying on professional services provided by others.

The draft standard and learning material (videos, infographics) is available online for registrants to review and provide feedback on the draft standard. This is a valuable step in the practice standards development process; your participation is a vital component of self-regulation.

The material covers the professional obligations of APEGA licensed professionals and permit holders, when:

  • providing direct supervision and control
  • conducting a thorough review
  • relying on the work of others
    • within your permit to practice
    • outside your permit to practice (outsourcing)
  • outsourcing professional services
    • to APEGA licensed professionals or permit holders
    • to others who do not hold an APEGA license or permit to practice

We strongly encourage you to review the draft practice standard, videos, and infographics. Questions and comments on the draft standard should be submitted through the feedback form, and please fill in the survey to comment on the delivery of information (session, self-study).
