ARB issues architects’ survey and call for evidence


The Architects Registration Board launched a call for evidence and an architects’ survey as part of the review of its regulatory model and architects’ competence. ARB is due to receive legislative powers to monitor the competence of architects at the end of 2021.

The call for evidence is open to any interested party and closes at noon on 23 October 2020 and the architects’ survey – e-mailed to all UK architects with an e-mail address registered with ARB – will close on 18 September at noon. Findings will be reported in early 2021.

Architects’ survey

This survey seeks insight into the experiences of architects as well as their views on their current role and changes within the profession.

Call for evidence

This seeks views and evidence from all interested parties on whether the current criteria remain fit for purpose, and whether current systems are effective in ensuring architects remain sufficiently competent as long as they are registered.

You can learn more about the survey and call for evidence on ARB’s website.
