The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA)

RIBA is a professional body that represents the interests of the profession. They provide professional training, qualifications and access to information. RIBA is not a governing body but they do require their members to maintain professional indemnity cover.

In the UK, the Architects Registration Board requires all practising registered persons to be covered by a professional indemnity insurance (PII) policy. Advice should be sought from the ARB regarding the level of cover it requires for a member’s income and portfolio. The Institute recognises that PII is not the only form of insurance cover available. Those members not registered with the ARB (such as those working abroad), must ensure that they have an appropriate form of cover for their circumstances.
