Registration Renewal FAQs

Registration is renewed annually. Architects pay an annual registration fee each year in June to maintain their registration.

How do I renew online?

Architects who wish to complete their annual renewal of registration online need to first create an account. If you used our online system between 2013 - 2016 you will already have an account you can login using the same details.  If you did not create an account previously then you must create a new account. Click here to create a new account

Once you have created an account, login and then validate yourself by confirming your full name, date of birth and your architect registration number against the online database.

Proceed through the steps where you can make any changes to your address and contact details.  

Every practising architect during the year 2016/2017 must attach a CPD Activity Record. And if you carry your own Professional Indemnity Insurance policy, we're asking you to upload this too. These records remain confidential and secure.

Renew prior to 30 June 2017 and pay your annual registration fee using Visa or Mastercard.

Possible reasons why validation fails:

The name you entered may not match the register

Do not enter a shortened version of your name or your nickname. To check your official name, search the online database using the "Search Register" form at the top left of this website. Enter your surname and suburb and then click "Search".

The registration number you entered may not match the register

Do you not enter registration numbers for other organisations. To check your NSW registration number, search the online database using the "Search Register" form at the top left of this website. Enter your surname and suburb and then click "Search".


Q - I am unable to find my name using the online search

If your Architect registration status was previously suspended or cancelled it will not appear on the Architect Register. In this case please contact the Board on (02) 9241 4033.
