The Architects' Register can issue an attestation or certificate of registration to those registered if, for example, they wish to undertake a project abroad

Provision of an attestation

An attestation may contain the following components:

  • Confirmation of registration in the Dutch Register of Architects.

  • Confirmation that the diploma complies with EU Directive 2005/36/EC

  • Confirmation about disciplinary sanctions ('work history beyond reproach')

  • Confirmation about the professional experience period attended or not attended.

Even if someone is not registered in the Dutch Architects' Register but has a relevant Dutch diploma, the Architects' Register can issue an attestation. In this situation, the applicant should request an attestation and submit a certified copy of the Dutch diploma by mail.
