Certification as a Registered Onsite Wastewater Practitioner
The Sewerage System Regulation specifies that only Authorized Persons (or an owner supervised by an Authorized Person) may construct or maintain onsite sewage treatment and dispersal systems. A person is qualified to act as an Authorized Person only if the person holds a registration certificate issued by the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of British Columbia (ASTTBC), or is registered as a Professional by an association such as the Engineers and Geoscientists of BC.
To meet the requirements of the Sewerage System Regulation, ASTTBC certifies Authorized Persons as Registered Onsite Wastewater Practitioners (ROWP). The allowable scope of ROWP practice is defined within four categories of certification: Installer, Maintenance Provider, Planner, and Private Inspector. ROWPs may be certified in one or more categories.
