One of the reasons all engineers who insist they are structural engineers in BC, have to re-qualify as Structural Engineers of Record (SER).
 
Save-on-Foods roof collapse was the first.
 
Then came the Closkey Commission.  Then came the BC Government warning of takeovers of licensing & registration if we (APEGBC) couldn't show that we are self regulating.  Then came "SER"!
 
And in about 5 years time, we might not be able to spell it, but some of us will be "real" structural injaneers.
