AU WA A253 - ARCHITECTS' BOARD OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA (1922-01-01 -)

Administrative history

The Architects' Board is the body authorised to examine, register and investigate complaints about architects, and those fraudulently claiming to be architects.

The Board was created under the Architects' Act 1921. Although the Board reports to State Parliament through the Minister for Works, it is entirely self funded by all the architects. The Board is composed of ten members. Six are elected by architects, three are appointed by the Governor on the recommendation of the Government, and one is a representative of the Royal Australian Institute of Architects.

Only Architects registered by the Architects' Board may describe themselves as architects. Under Section 29(1) of the Architects' Act, it is an offence for anyone who is not registered with the Architects' Board to claim they are practicing architecture.

The Architects' Act also requires that firms or corporations describing themselves as architects must be registered with the Architects' Board. The Registrar of the Architects' Board is able to advise which firms comply with the requirements for registration.
