Woodman-Smith v Architects Registration Board

Architect – Registration. The appellant architect appealed against the respondent Architects Registration Board's Professional Conduct Committee's (the PCC) decision that he was guilty of unacceptable professional conduct and the issue of a reprimand. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that the PCC had had jurisdiction as the appellant had been registered and that an architect acting under the Party Wall etc Act 1996 had the same obligations as in other matters. Further, the PCC had been entitled to find the appellant's breach had constituted unacceptable professional conduct and to impose the reprimand.
