Qualified Environmental Professional | QEP
What is a QEP?
A Qualified Environmental Professional (QEP) is an applied scientist or technologist registered with a professional organization enabled under an Act, who must follow a code of ethics issued by the professional organization, and can be subject to desciplinary action by the organization (1). For example, a Registered Professional Biologist "RPBio" is registered with the College of Applied Biology enacted under the College of Applied Biology Act (2), must follow a code of ethics (3) and is subject to disciplination action (4); therefore an RPBio is a QEP (1).
Areas of Expertise
QEP is a broad term; a QEP must be acting within their area of expertise and therefore a project may require several QEPs (8). The Riparian Areas Regulation is a good example; a list of skill sets are documented in the RAR methods that each QEP must have to perform each task of the assessment (7).
