ARB was established by an Act of Parliament, the Architects Act 1997. This piece of legislation provides the framework for all of our statutory duties and responsibilities and the activities needed to support them. As well as UK legislation, we are, like many other organisations, subject to certain legislation issued by the European Parliament from time to time.
This section of the site allows you to refer to the legislation under which we operate, and the legislation we are by law required to comply with.
