The College bylaws have been revised. The revisions to the bylaws were approved by Council and the Office of the Superintendent of Professional Governance. The revisions take effect as of February 22, 2022.
The College’s bylaws were originally approved in February 2021. Throughout the past year the College’s staff, Council and statutory committees have been operationalizing the bylaws which has uncovered a few gaps and omissions that needed to be remedied. These include but are not limited to:
- granting express authority to request information from registrants
- clarifying provisions around remuneration for volunteers
- requiring audit and credentials assessors to apply Council approved policies
- determining and refining the scopes of practice for Registered Biology Technologists (RBTechs) and Applied Biology Technicians (ABTs)
In 2021 a Task Force was struck to further determine and refine the scopes of practice for RBTechs and ABTs. The result of the work has been drafted into legal language and included as Schedule 3 in the bylaws.
If you have any questions about the revisions or about the bylaws themselves, please contact the College office.
