RIBA is seeking feedback on areas of mandatory competences which UK chartered members will be expected to meet and is seeking input by 17 June 2021.
As outlined within the RIBA’s Education and Professional Development Framework, The Way Ahead, the first three areas of mandatory competence, and proposed dates for compliance, are:
- Health and Life Safety – UK members will need to demonstrate understanding of seven core areas such as CDM Regulations and designing for fire safety to renew membership from 2023.
- Climate Literacy – UK members will need to demonstrate their ability to design buildings that deliver sustainable outcomes and meet the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge to renew membership from 2024.
- Ethical Practice – UK members will need to demonstrate understanding the RIBA Codes of Conduct and Practice; their duties to themselves, to the profession, to colleagues, to commissioning services and to society to renew membership from 2024.
RSUA will be responding on behalf of architects in Northern Ireland and if you want to contribute responses, please contact Jude Faloon by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
