APEGA 2020 Annual Report

Appeal Board The APEGA Appeal Board independently reviews decisions made by the Discipline Committee, the Practice Review Board, the Investigative Committee, and the Board of Examiners. When an appeal is filed, a panel of professionals and a public member appointed by the provincial government determine if the original committee or board used a fair process and made a reasonable decision.

Joint Boards APEGA and the Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta (ASET) protect the public by jointly regulating professional technologists through the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act . Together, we manage: • registration practices • a professional discipline system • continuing professional development • practice reviews of practising professional technologists APEGA-ASET joint boards and committees have equal representation and similar functions to APEGA boards and committees.

Appeals can be made for: • registration refusals • investigative dismissals • discipline decisions

To reduce decision-making risk and improve consistency, APEGA provided adjudication training to Appeal Board, Discipline Committee, Investigative Committee, and Registration Executive Committee volunteers and staff. Forty-five attendees participated in the week-long training.
