Abstract/Description or Keywords This document (1) provides guidelines of professional practice for a Professional
Engineer and Professional Geoscientist who carries out a landslide analysis for a
proposed residential development, and (2) provides guidance to the professional as to
how to relate the results of the analysis to a level of landslide safety for residential
development when required by provincial legislation. Appendix D to these guidelines
provides a Landslide Assessment Assurance Statement that must be submitted, along
with a landslide assessment report, to an Approving Authority.
Land Owners and Development Consultants; Land Use Planners, Approving Officers
and Building Inspectors; Municipalities, Regional Districts, and the Islands Trust6

provincial government; and the general public frequently rely on such landslide
assessments. These guidelines may also assist those parties.
These guidelines address typical project organization and responsibilities of the various
