Architect: Licences


You need to be aware that the Architects Act 1997 restricts the use of the title Architect to those people who are registered with the Architects' Registration Board. You will need to have gained certain qualifications in order to be eligible to register and you will have to pay an annual retention fee.

Under the Data Protection Act you may have to register as a data user with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) if you keep computerised records of your clients' personal details. You will have to pay a fee for this.
