The RIBA has postponed the introduction of its Chartered Practice Scheme by six months to allow practices more time to prepare for its requirements.

The institute has pledged that the cost of the scheme will not fall on the membership generally, but will be entirely self-supporting. This delay can only increase costs for participants.

Might now be the time for the RIBA to consider the scheme's abolition? It is an interventionist and divisive proposal which seeks to support only those practices that sign up to it and leaves the others out in the cold.

Should not the RIBA support all practices, or leave practice support to an all-inclusive body such as the Association of Consultant Architects?
