We wish to make it clear that the Stephen McQuiston featured in the article 'Planning Forgery Case in Court' (AJ 03.11.05) is not a member of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists.

According to our records, he has never been a member of our institute, nor has he expressed an interest in joining.

It is important that the institute makes clear that the descriptor 'architectural technologist' is not a protected title and anyone may hold themselves out to be an architectural technologist. However, since our successful petition and grant of charter in July this year, we do have control of the descriptor 'chartered architectural technologist'.

We do have a conduct and disciplinary procedure and if McQuiston had been a member of the institute we may have considered this case and taken any necessary actions.

Francesca Berriman, chief executive, Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists
