RSUA members help shape the future of architects regulation


Members of The Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA) have been playing a role in shaping the future of the regulation of architects in the UK as part of later stages of the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities’ (MHCLG) recent review.

After submitting an official response to the original call for evidence, which was open for a period of twelve weeks from August 2021, RSUA members are now participating in a series of workshops which cover a variety of topics, such as types of registration and specialisms, a discussion on the value of the qualification and registration, diversity and access to the profession, reservation of title and function, Regulation of practices, sustainability and innovation and research.

The review, which aims to “improve and develop the current regulatory framework so it better supports the development and growth of the profession” is expected to conclude by Spring, with findings and recommendations being announced Summer 2022.
