Architects from across the UK are being given the opportunity to shape the future of the profession, as part of a wholesale review that will modernise regulation and improve accessibility and innovation in the sector.

The call for evidence which runs until 8 November will focus specifically on the role of the Architects Registration Board (ARB). This will form the first part of a wider review of architectural regulation, including thematic workshops and interviews with sector representatives.

Initial findings from the review will be provided to the Housing Secretary by Spring 2022, with the outcome expected in the Summer.

Housing Minister, Rt Hon Christopher Pincher MP said:

“Our architectural sector is one of the best in the world – with first-class educational institutions, world-leading practices, and a healthy export market.”

“The review will build on this outstanding legacy, looking to the future and exploring the changes we need for an innovative, accessible and broad profession that delivers better, greener and safer design and construction.”

The review will complement existing work and will invite responses on wider aspects including:

  • how the profession can become more diverse and accessible
  • whether the current regulatory regime is fit for purpose
  • the role of the regulation of architects in ensuring a more sustainable built environment; and
  • how the government can promote innovation in the sector.
