Register of Disciplinary Actions Against Architects
The Board is tasked by the Architects Act 2002 to ensure that architects provide services to the public in a professional and competent manner, and to provide mechanisms to discipline architects who are found to have acted unprofessionally or incompetently.
The 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."
The intent of public notification is two-fold:
• To educate architects to continuously improve their standard of practice; and
• To assist in the protection of the public.
