Protecting The Public

Protecting the Public

As a self-regulating professional association, ASET ensures public safety with a responsibility to guarantee the qualifications of those holding ASET titles and protect against title misuse, and the ability to exercise disciplinary and legal action to ensure competence of ASET members. 

An ASET designation shows a member has met strict national criteria for certification in their field. Under the Engineering and Geosciences Professions Act, ASET members are also accountable for public safety under the law.

If you have a concern about the conduct, behaviour or practice of an ASET member, please do not hesitate to contact the Registrar.

Self Regulating Professions

Although the provincial government remains ultimately responsible for public safety and well-being, it entrusts this responsibility to professional self-regulatory associations such as ASET. ASET’s ongoing commitment to protecting the public interest is evident in our activities, which include:
  • providing certification to qualified Members 
  • administering a complaint and discipline process 
  • promoting professional development


We benefit the public and the profession by being the premier regulator, service provider, and promoter of safe, high quality professional technology practice.


To be recognized and respected as the innovative self-regulating professional body defining the latest scope and standards of practice for a dynamic and engaged community of technology professionals.
