On 16 April 2014, the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) announced its call for evidence for people’s views on the regulation of architects.
The call for evidence asks for views on three distinct subject areas – the case for the regulation of architects; different models of regulating architects and evaluating the current model of regulation and the Architects Registration Board.
The government has advised that it has no preferred outcome to the review process. DCLG have created an online survey which they are encouraging interested parties to use to express their views on this subject.
The launch of the call for evidence follows the announcement of the Periodic Review in the House of Commons on 31 March 2014. This was made by Stephen Williams MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, in the form of a Written Ministerial Statement.
