The Architects Registration Board (ARB) will be speaking at the Association of Consultant Architects (ACA) CPD Zone at London Build at Olympia, on the 23 October.
ACA promotes and enables standards in practice within its own membership which their sessions at London Build will reflect. As the statutory regulator of architects in the UK, ARB’s Chair and its Registrar and Chief Executive will be providing information on the profession.
Karen Holmes, Registrar and Chief Executive of the ARB, said “We welcome the opportunity to support architects wherever possible and hope to provide useful insight on the current status of the profession.”
The session will begin at 10.30 until 19.30, with scheduled lunch and tea breaks. ARB will be discussing the status of the profession from 16:40.
Notes for Editors
ARB is the statutory body established by Parliament under the Architects Act 1997 to regulate the UK architects’ profession in the public interest. The Act requires ARB (among other things) to:
- Maintain the Register of Architects (Section 3)
- Prescribe qualifications for entry to the Register of Architects (Section 4)
- Deal with competence to practise (Section 9)
- Issue a Code which lays down standards of professional conduct and practice (Section 13)
- Regulate use of the title “architect” and prosecute those who use it unlawfully (Section 20)
ARB currently has a Board of 15 members, either elected or appointed, to represent the interests of consumers and users of architectural services.
