The Architects Registration Board (ARB) was established by an Act of Parliament – the Architects Act 1997 – and is the statutory regulator of architects in the UK.

One of the Board’s statutory responsibilities is to set the UK standards for entry to the Register of Architects and to prescribe the qualifications and practical training experience needed to become an architect in the UK. In order to do this, the Board has established a prescription process for recognising qualifications and experience as well as the Criteria which must be met at the appropriate level.

The Criteria set out the standards, attributes, knowledge, understanding and abilities that individuals must have met before at the end of each level. The Procedures set out the detailed processes which the Board undertakes when dealing with the prescription of a qualification for the first time, renewing prescription and reviewing prescribed qualifications through annual monitoring.

ARB will be undertaking cyclical reviews of the Criteria and Procedures for the Prescription of Qualifications over the coming months. As part of a pre-consultation to the review process we are keen to gather and would value your feedback in relation to the current documents.

We have set up an online survey so that you can tell us more about your views and make suggestions about how we could improve the Criteria and Procedures. We are looking for a wide and diverse range of opinions so that these can be used by the Board to make decisions about any changes to the Criteria and Procedures.

The closing date for completing the survey is Monday 2 October 2017.

We are committed to gathering views, so in addition to the survey we will be running five round table meetings where you can meet with us face to face and provide us with your feedback.  Click on the location headings below for further details.

If you would like to attend any of these events please contact Emma Matthews (emmam@arb.org.uk) or  020 7580 5861) to reserve your place.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our events or to receiving your views and feedback via our online survey.
