Architect 'erased' for failing to prove PII
An architect from south London has been struck off the ARB register for failing to prove she had adequate insurance cover
The decision on Tuesday (13 April) by the board’s Professional Conduct Committee (PCC) to erase Sarah Carp comes just days after the ARB lost its case against long-term critic Ian Salisbury for failing to ‘tick the insurance box’. Salisbury, who has always maintained his professional indemnity insurance (PII), successfully argued the ARB had gone beyond its powers after charging him with professional misconduct for not completing the tick box form.
Carp, from Streatham, was found guilty of unacceptable professional conduct by the PCC after she had ‘consistently ignored’ the board’s letters and telephone calls.
A spokesman said: ‘The committee decided that the failure to carry professional indemnity insurance and failure to respond to the board’s repeated requests for information amounted to unacceptable professional conduct, and that the only appropriate sanction was erasure from the register.’
