Professional Practice F A C E - T O - F A C E E N G A G E M E N T W I T H M E M B E R S A N D P E R M I T H O L D E R S The Professional Practice Department is all about contact with professionals. We do this through information and feedback sessions on new practice standards and guidelines. Through seminars for permits to practice. Through practice reviews. Through counselling members on how to properly meet APEGA’s requirements for continuing professional development. Authentication Standard Understanding and properly implementing authentication, particularly in the digital space, is one of the most talked-about challenges licenced professionals face in their practice. The Professional Practice Department, through the Authentication Standard Subject-Matter Panel (consisting of subject-matter experts and a select group of permit holders), updated APEGA's Authenticating Professional Documents Practice Standard . We even updated the name. Now titled Authenticating Professional Work Products , this standard improves definitions and adds clarity to this important professional responsibility. Practice Reviews The main objective of our practice review effort in 2018 was to collect data on the time, effort, and resources required to complete reviews. This will inform our decision- making process on the appropriate level of practice reviews to be conducted annually to demonstrate the due diligence serving the public interest requires of us. APEGA initiated 27 practice review this year. Feedback from permit holders was mostly positive, with many thanking us for our insights and recommendations. Those interactions add up. In 2018, we talked to more than 4,000 licenced professionals.
