PGA AND NEW BYLAWS NOW IN EFFECT
On February 5, 2021 ASTTBC officially transitioned to the Professional Governance Act (PGA).
ASTTBC along with the Engineers and Geoscientists of BC (EGBC), the Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP), the College of Applied Biology (CAB) and the B.C. Institute of Agrologists (BCIA) are now regulatory bodies identified by the PGA.
The PGA establishes a new, modernized framework for professional regulators in the natural and built environment. Included in this legislation are standards relating the governance of regulatory bodies, role of ASTTBC, setting out ethical principles and responsibilities of its registrants, which is applied consistently among PGA regulators. Registrants of ASTTBC will continue to be held to maintain high standards of conduct and competency, and will have a duty to report among other requirements.
