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.
The registration status of a person can be checked by searching the Board’s public Register.
Corporations and firms 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.
Annual registration renewal is due on 30 June each year. Architects can login at any time to update their CPD records.
