Complaints & Enforcement
APEGA’s primary role is to protect public interest and safety. APEGA serves the public interest by ensuring individuals and companies that practise engineering or geoscience in Alberta are competent, ethical, and professional. APEGA’s authority to regulate the professions comes from the Engineering and Geoscience Professions (EGP) Act.
APEGA ensures members and permit holders adhere to the EGP Act by:
- investigating complaints
- managing appeals
- enforcing professional practice of members and permit holders through practice reviews
- ensuring members participate in compulsory continuing professional development
- preventing unlicensed people and organizations from practising or using reserved titles
