California Council of Geoscience Organizations - Since 1997
2016 - FOR WELL OVER A DECADE THE FOCUS AT CCGO REMAINS ON LEGISLATION, THE PROFESSIONAL BOARD THAT REGULATES GEOLOGISTS (BOARD FOR PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERS, LANDSURVEYORS AND GEOLOGISTS), AS WELL AS THE PUBLIC SERVICE GEOLOGY ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS THE CALIFORNIA GEOLOGICAL SURVEY AND THE STATE MINING AND GEOLOGY BOARD
CCGO provides these links for your convenience to help you in researching the various California laws which provide measures to protect human safety and health, balanced protection of the environment from human activities, and adherence to sound scientific and geologic principles. CCGO is currently updating a comprehensive database of Federal, State, and Local laws and regulations pertaining to geologists in California. We expect to have the database updated some time in 2005, and will provide summaries and position statements at that time. In addition, CCGO is currently researching and writing a White Paper on the value of the geoscience professions to people and property in California.
