Anyone who believes that an individual or an architectural firm has unlawfully used a title that is protected by the Dutch Architects’ Title Act may report this to the Architects Registration Bureau. Offenders will then be urged to stop using the title.

If the unlawful use of the title continues, legal proceedings may be instituted. The court may impose a penalty sum to enforce discontinuation of the unlawful use of title. 

Each registered architect is at liberty to urge offenders to stop using the title or to bring the case before court. The Architects Registration Bureau may provide advice in this respec.
