Detail of outcome
The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has completed the first part of the 2014 periodic review of the Architects Registration Board.
The department received a strong response to its call for evidence as to whether or not regulation of the architect profession should continue and has concluded, that there remains a case for continued light-touch regulation based on protection of title.
The DCLG has conducted a detailed review of architect regulation and the Architects Registration Board and its findings were published on 30 March 2017.
The review confirms continued light touch regulation based on protection of title but has identified opportunities to reduce costs and improve services through strengthening the Board’s governance and improving their complaints handling processes.
