We are aware of the recent publication of the government’s technical notice on Providing services including those of a qualified professional if there’s no Brexit deal. We are carefully reviewing the paper and will aim to provide a further response later today.
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.
