Roughly the independent route consists of 5 steps:

Step 2: Start meeting
Step 3: Interim meeting
Step 4: Final meeting
Step 5: Registration in the Dutch Architect Register

In 2021 costs will be €1260,- or three installments of €430,- If a meeting is cancelled within one month before the meeting, or if you don't show up, we will charge you €160,- to cover the costs of this meeting. 

Meeting dates of committees
Every month, apart from the summerholidays, the committees conduct meetings with participants of the independent (individual) route.      There are 5 committees: Architecture A1, Architecture A2, Interior Design, Urban Design and Landscape Design.

Application for the individual route
After we have accepted you as participant of the individual route, you can log on to the portal on your personal page. This personal page is private and can be accessed only by you, the Bureau Architectenregister and the Committee. The page is used to store and exchange documents and to record your progress during your BEP. There you will find all the  necessary documents, forms and manuals. Read these documents carefully and follow the instructions!  For background information and all requirements we refer to the Regeling Beroepservaringperiode  (in Dutch only)


NOTE: For your application and your later enrollment in the Architecten Register we need a certified (paper) copy of your diploma. Send this to us by regular mail. Your BEP can only start after we have received and processed your diploma and you have been given access to your personal page.

Our address details are:

Bureau Architectenregister
Nassauplein 24, 2585 EC The Hague, The Netherlands

A certified copy is a copy with an authentic certification stamp and a signature of either  the educational institution or a notary. Or you can make an appointment to show us your original diploma.  Unfortunately a digitally certified extract from the DUO Diplomaregister cannot be accepted because the specialization is not mentioned separately.
