Protecting the Public During Preliminary Investigations
Interim suspensions: APEGA’s Investigative Committee temporarily suspended two registrants in 2021, pending completion of our investigation and a Discipline Committee decision. This is an extraordinary measure warranted by the circumstances of these cases.
Voluntary undertakings: The Investigative Committee also restricted the scope of practice of two registrants. The restrictions were mutually agreed on by the committee and the registrants, and the investigations continue in 2022.
To increase transparency, interim suspensions and voluntary undertakings are published on our website .
Discipline Hearing: The Investigative Committee has referred the matter to the Discipline Committee for a formal hearing. Mediated: The Investigative Committee has approved the mediated agreement between the parties. RDO (Recommended Discipline Order): The registrant has admitted to unskilled practice, unprofessional conduct, or both, and has agreed to specific sanctions. Terminated: The Investigative Committee has determined the complaint was either frivolous or vexatious, or there was insufficient evidence of unskilled practice, unprofessional conduct, or both. Withdrawn: The complainant has either withdrawn or abandoned the complaint.
