The Board’s powers are derived from the 1997 Architects Act, and its work is governed by the General Rules.  As well as the powers to make rules and establish committees, the Board is responsible for:

  • providing leadership and direction to ARB
  • agreeing its strategy and setting cost-effective plans to implement that strategy
  • ensuring that appropriate schemes for delegating and reporting procedures are in place
  • reviewing its own performance and effectiveness
  • accounting for its actions in appropriate ways, as required by law and good practice

ARB's strategy is set out in the Board's Purpose and Objectives.

Board members are responsible for maintaining and promoting the public’s trust and confidence in the integrity of both ARB and of the architects’ profession.  They do this by leadership and example, and by working together in a spirit of mutual trust and respect.
