The online Register of Architects was launched on 16th November 2009.
The Register lists over 2,600 architects If the person who is providing your architectural service is not on the Register, you should ask about relevant qualifications and their registration. The RIAI can also provide advice.
It is important to understand that the registration system is about the legal protection of the title ‘architect’. It does not limit those who provide services in the field of architecture to architects who are named on the Register.
Although the RIAI carries out a statutory function as the Registration Body and Competent Authority for Architects in Ireland this is carried out on an entirely self-funding basis. The RIAI does not receive any Government Funding or State Aid for this Statutory Function.
The relevant sections of the Building Control Act 2007 are:
Part 1: Preliminary and General (Sections 1 - 2)
Part 3: Registration of Architects (Sections 13 - 27)
Part 6: Fitness to Practice (Sections 56 - 59)
Part 7: Miscellaneous Provisions (Sections 60 - 73)
