ARCHITECTS REGISTRATION BOARD

GUIDE TO BECOMING A REGISTERED ARCHITECT IN BARBADOS

Revised December 16th, 2011

On 21st April, 2003 the Parliament of Barbados enacted an Act to make provision respecting the registration of architects and for related matters. The Act is cited as the Architects Registration Act, 2003. On 8th December, 2005 the Act was amended (Architects Registration (Amendment) Act, 2003-28). Within this Handbook, we shall refer to both the Act and the amendment as the Architects Registration Act. They are available for purchase at the Barbados Government Printery, located at Bay Street, St. Michael. The Act defines the practice of Architecture, states qualifications for registration, provides for the use of the title “Architect” to persons registered under the Act, provides for confined conditions of the practice of architecture by persons that are not registered architects, and provides for regulations to be administered by the Architects Registration Board. The Act also provides the constitution and procedure of the Board and a Form (FORM A) for application for registration as an architect.
