I entirely agree with Jack Pringle's letter to the ARB and hope that good may come of it.
I have always refused the ARB's demands for a PII compliance certificate and, after one or two threatening letters from the board, have heard no more.
Could I suggest that the RIBA recommends the same course of action to all members? I cannot imagine the ARB could do much about a mass refusal.
When are we going to be delivered from this awful organisation? If needs be, let's renounce protection of title and enhance the value of being a chartered architect. I imagine the RIBA could spend far more usefully the fee the ARB extracts from us for its unwelcome activities.
