Board consults when it feels like it, says Pringle


Jon Levett, head of education at the ARB, says the board consulted with the RIBA on its assessment procedures (AJ 11.11.04), but that is not to say we were consulted on the ARB's massive fee hike or that we in any way condone it. It is another example of the board using its statutory monopoly to impose unchallengeable fees at whatever level it determines.

It is also regrettable that the ARB will not involve the RIBA in these assessment processes.

Instead, the institute will have to set up its own procedures for admitting suitably qualified, and therefore welcome, foreign architects to chartered membership of the RIBA.

Jack Pringle, president elect, RIBA
