An Architect is a registered individual that has attained the necessary architectural qualifications (5-year Master of Architecture or equivalent) and has completed the national examination. All architects are regulated by the Architectural Practice Board of SA and must follow the Architects’ Code of Conduct. They must also maintain professional indemnity insurance to ensure they are covered for claims of negligence or other civil claims.

Every architect must also be proficient in all elements of the National Standards of Competency for Architects (NSCA). Registered architects must undertake and report their Continuing Professional Development activities each year.

Members of the community are entitled to have services provided at a professional level by a registered architect or architectural business. Registration ensures the public interest is protected and that architects are accountable for both their conduct and competency.
