Lesson Learnt from Lanka? : RIBA pitches for Arb's registration role

By David Rogers

The RIBA has called on the government to let it take over regulation and registration powers from the Architects Registration Board.

Research carried out for the institute into the future regulation and registration of the profession by academic Christopher Ball concluded that the current model was unnecessarily complex.

The Conservative Party has previously said it would scrap Arb if it comes to power.

Ball's report was discussed at yesterday’s RIBA Council and president Ruth Reed said: “Sir Christopher Ball’s thorough and objective report has provided evidence which confirms the RIBA’s view that current regulation lacks transparency, fairness and freedom for the development of the profession.

“Therefore we believe that while statutory protection of title should be maintained, we want to thoroughly research and develop proposals for the registration of architects to be transferred from the Arb to the RIBA.”

While putting together his report, Ball consulted with Arb, the Department for Communities & Local Government and other architects.
