Complaints and Discipline
The Purpose of ASTTBC is "To maintain, improve and increase the knowledge, ability and competence of technologists and technicians, to regulate standards of training and practice for its members, and to protect the interests of the public." Under the ASTT Act and Regulations, in the provision of professional certification of technologists, technicians and technical specialists, it is required that members adhere to a Code of Ethics, provide a disciplinary mechanism to deal with breaches of the Code, and protect ASTTBC titles and designations. The ASTTBC Council has charged the Practice Review Board (PRB) with the responsibility for enforcement of the 'Code of Ethics', as well as with protecting ASTTBC's titles and designations. Members are encouraged to review the following reports that highlight the activities and resolved case files of the PRB at http://asttbc.org/practice/complaints/findings.php. These cases will provide members with crucial information on why insurance is important as a working professional.
ENCON has published a number of Property & Liability Insurance resources on their website including Claims Examples in a number of areas such as:
- Builders Risk
- Environmental Liability
- Errors & Omissions
- Professional Liability for Architects & Engineers (applicable information resource for all ASTTBC registrants as well)
- Technology Insurance
