The Board is responsible under the Architects Act 2002 for ensuring that architects provide services to the public in a professional and competent manner, and to discipline architects whose conduct has been unprofessional.

This Register of Disciplinary Actions is published in accordance with section 74A of the Architects Act 2002 which states that:

"Where the Board decides to caution or reprimand an architect under s.73(2)(C) of the Act or to impose a condition on an architect's registration under s.73(2)(d) the Board may notify the decision and the reasons for the decision on the Board's website."
