Annual registration renewal opens on 1 June and is due on 30 June each year. Architects can login at any time to update their CPD records. 

Architects pay an annual registration fee each year to maintain their registration. This is best done by creating a 'login' to set up an account. Upon renewal, the architect can download a Statement of Currency at any time showing the individual's registration number and verifies the status as an architect registered in NSW.

Fees for renewal are:

  • Non-Practising: $50

  • Practising: $285

The registration status of a person can be checked by searching the Board’s public Register. 

Corporations and firms must nominate at least one architect responsible for the provision of architectural services.

Each year at annual renewal of registration architects are required to report on their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities in the previous year. The Board considers that 20 hours of activities of which at least 10 hours are formal should be the minimum amount of activity undertaken by an architect in each year. 


Non-practising or deregistered architects who now wish to be reinstated to full registration on the Register of Architects must complete the below form and comply with the prescribed conditions for application. 

Conditions on re-registration as a practising architect may apply depending on how long you have been in the non-practising category:

0-3 years: Automatic processing of application.

3-5 years: Application to be accompanied by a current CV showing work and a record of CPD. You
may be required to attend a refresher course in professional practice, and may be required to attend
an interview at the discretion of the Registrar if your record isn't current.

5+ years: As above but likely to be required to attend a refresher course in professional practice within
3 months of restoration to the register or registration, and be required to attend an interview unless
otherwise advised by the Registrar.
