Geoscience Standards Subcommittee

The Geoscience Standards Subcommittee is responsible to the Professional Standards Committee for ensuring the relevance and effectiveness of all APEGA Professional Practice Standards, Guidelines and Bulletins related to the professional practice of geoscience. 

The Subcommittee follows industry trends to alert the Professional Standards Committee of emergent conditions that may require a response by the Practice Review Board. These alerts may trigger a need for establishing new standards or updating existing ones to fulfill that need and to provide guidance to practicing Geoscientists confronting unfamiliar situations or new technologies.
