Metro Vancouver, July 2013 — APEGBC Organizational Quality Management (OQM) certification has been earned by Bannerman Consultants. The program of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC is focussed on the quality control of professional engineering and geoscience practices at organisations that employ Professional Engineers and Geoscientists. The OQM program recognizes that company procedures and policies have a direct impact on the performance of engineering. The certification is a recognition of implementation and continual improvement of the quality management systems of the company. It is intended to improve risk management and overall efficiency. Nevertheless, APEGBC Professional Engineers remain ultimately responsible and accountable for their engineering work and for meeting their professional obligations including the code of ethics.
