Non-Practising Architect

An Architect (Non-Practising) is an architect who is not involved in the ‘practice of architecture’ and who currently holds, or has previously held, a licence. An Architect (Non-Practising) cannot provide services to the public through a Certificate of Practice (either their own or under that of another holder), or as an employee of a company that designs its own buildings, or a government ministry or agency. With respect to this status, project management, consulting, and expert opinion are all considered the ‘practice of architecture.’

Architects (Non-Practising) are Architects who surrender their licence and make application for a licence with Terms, Conditions, and Limitations (TCL). This status is limited to three years.
