Architects Registration Board (ARB) was established by Parliament in 1996 to regulate the architects’ profession in Sri Lanka. Our work in regulating architects ensures that good standards within the profession are consistently maintained for the benefit of the public and architects alike. ARB registers under 3 categories, viz. Chartered Architects, Architects, & Architectural Licentiates.
Architects Registration Board is established under the Sri Lanka Institute of Architects (Amendment) Act No,14 of 1996 to make legal provisions for qualified persons to Practice the Profession of Architecture in Sri Lanka.
Those who have qualified in the field of Architecture with recognized qualifications and who wish to practice the Profession of Architecture should register with the Architects Registration Board annually.
Particulars of registrants are published annually by two Extraordinary Gazettes in January and July each year.
The Registrants of the ARB are provided with an Official Rubber Stamp (Seal) and only registrants are eligible to use the Seal issued by the ARB.
