Association of Professional Engineers & Geoscientists of BC
APEGBC’s Organizational Quality Management (OQM) Program has been developed to improve the quality management of professional engineering and geoscience practices at the individual and organizational level. This voluntary program offers certification to participating organizations. This proactive program is based on the 7 quality management requirements in the Engineers and Geoscientists Act and Bylaws of the association. Previous to the launch of the OQM program APEGBC only had an influence on quality management of the professions at the individual level, now that influence has been expanded to the organizations that employ APEGBC members.
