Authenticating Professional Work Products




The APEGA practice standard, Authenticating Professional Work Products, published 01 July 2019, explains the professional obligations and expectations of licensed professionals, Responsible Members, and permit holders for authenticating professional work products (PWPs). Areas addressed in the new standard include improved definitions, a method to determine what needs to be authenticated, acceptable methods for physical and digital authentication and validation of the PWPs, and the reintroduction of the Permit to Practice stamp.

In this talk, APEGA will discuss the themes of the new standard and respond to industry-specific authentication questions (control systems, automation, SCADA, and instrumentation). As part of the planned program of work to enhance the standard through industry-specific appendices, APEGA aims to better understand the unique challenges and concerns your practice sector faces regarding authentication.
