NCARB to Assist Brazil with Regulating Architectural Licensure

The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) has formed an agreement with the Conselho de Arquitetura e Urbanismo do Brasil (CAU/BR) to “exchange information and share best practices” regarding the regulation of architectural licensure and professional standards.

“NCARB is pleased to be in a position to help Brazil strengthen and solidify its regulatory approach governing architects,” said NCARB President Dale McKinney, FAIA, NCARB. “We are also excited to learn from Brazil’s activities, including its effective national system of monitoring various aspects of architectural practice.”

Representing about 110,000 architects, CAU/BR was established in 2010 to regulate the practice of architecture. The organization is especially interested in learning more about the interworking of NCARB’s licensure programs, such as the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®), the Intern Development Program (IDP), and the NCARB Education Standard. CAU/BR has also formed relationships with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and NAAB to help CAU/BR support its practitioners and establish an accreditation process for the country’s 300 schools of architecture.

This news comes shortly after NCARB announced tri-national agreement with Canada and Mexico to allow architects to work across borders in North America.
