427. Restrictions on use of title of 'architect'.

A person must not practise or carry on any business1 under any name, style or title containing the word 'architect'2 unless he is a person registered in Part 1 of the register of architects3 maintained by the Architects Registration Board4. A person is not, for the purposes of this restriction, to be treated as not practising by reason only of his being in the employment of another person5.

The prohibition of the use of the word 'architect' does not affect the use of the designation 'naval architect', 'landscape architect' or 'golfcourse architect'
