The importance of registration

Anyone who wishes to carry the professional title of architect, urban designer, garden and landscape architect, or interior architect, must be registered in the Architects’ Register.

The main reasons for registration are as follows:

  • Registration distinguishes the registered architects as qualified professionals.
  • Employers and clients may require architects to be registered before they can be engaged.
  • Being registered in the Architects’ Register may be a precondition for taking part in (international) competitions and tenders.
  • Carrying out activities in other EU Member States (and often outside the EU) is easier for persons who are registered.
