ARB Certificates

When you join the Register, or pay your retention fee, you are issued with a Registration Certificate, for the period January (or when you first join) through to December. This, along with the online Register, is your proof of current registration, and allows you to use the title “architect” in the UK.

In some circumstances, you may be asked to provide additional verification of your qualifications, usually if you are registering in another country, or applying to do further study.

You should review the different types of certificate, and their cost and production time, before applying. If you have questions, contact us on
