  • WHAT IS A QUALIFIED ENVIRONMENTAL PROFESSIONAL

    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 disciplinary action by the organization. For example, a Registered Professional Biologist "RPBio" is registered with the College of Applied Biology enacted under the College of Applied Biology Act, must follow a code of ethics and is subject to disciplinary action; therefore an RPBio is a QEP.

    WHEN DO YOU NEED A QEP

    A QEP is required any time you are going to perform work in or near the water. This includes both the marine environment and freshwater environments. Examples of projects include subdivisions, dredging and dock construction projects.

    WHAT DOES AN RAR ASSESSMENT COST?
