NZRAB or NZIA Registration
The New Zealand Registered Architects Board (NZRAB) is a statutory board tasked with registering, monitoring and, if need be, disciplining architects.
This is done to protect the public, which in turn protects the reputation of the architectural profession.
The NZRAB is required to review architects every five years to make sure that they still meet the minimum standard for continued registration. A record of CPD participation is one of the ways that architects being reviewed provide evidence that they meet the standard.
The New Zealand Institute of Architects is the professional body that represents architects and promotes architecture to the public.
The New Zealand Institute of Architects manages the CPD website for the New Zealand Registered Architects Board. As well as this, the New Zealand Institute of Architects provides CPD Events and manages the NZIA CPD Industry Provider’s Network.
