||6. AUDITING OF PROGRAMS
As part of the privilege of self-governance, the

Should an audit be initiated, you will be contacted
and requested to submit your records for review. The
audit will be to confirm that you have a continuing
professional development program in place, and the
program meets the intent of the guideline.
Records submitted will initially be
reviewed by APEGGA staff members. You may be contacted to
discuss the content of your program. Staff members may
provide suggestions on how to structure your program. In
some situations, volunteer experts may be asked to
your program is satisfactory, you will be so advised. If your program
is found to be unsatisfactory, a request for improvement may be made and
a reasonable amount of time given for that improvement. If a follow-up
audit is also unsatisfactory, the case may be referred for further action.
At this point, all existing procedures of Investigation, Discipline and
Appeal will come into effect.
Submitted records will be held in confidence and returned
at the end of the audit process. If your program involves
proprietary information, further arrangements will be
made to ensure confidentiality.
