1, 3 and 5-year registration terms for architects
Section 17(A) of the Architects Act 2003 allows an architect to nominate a 1, 3 or 5-year term for registration.
Registration may commence at any point in time and continues for a fixed-term as nominated by the architect (unless cancelled sooner). Refer to Section 50 of the Licensing and Regulation (Uniform Procedures) Act 2002.
From 1 June 2023 all renewal fees for Practising and Non-Practising architects will increase by 3.5%. Renewal fees from 1 June 2023 are:
|1 year renewal||$335|
|3 year renewal||$1,045*|
|5 year renewal||$1,800*|
|1 year renewal||$52|
|3 year renewal||$162*|
|5 year renewal||$280*|
* Note there is no saving for 3 and 5-year terms, which factor in a 3.5% year-on-year increase.
Late renewal of registration
If an architect’s application for renewal of registration is received after the due date but within three months of expiration, the architect can pay, in addition to the annual renewal fee, a $150 restoration fee and the registration will be backdated to allow for continuity of registration. If the application for renewal of registration is received more than three months after expiration, a $250 restoration fee will apply in addition to the annual renewal fee.
