Amendments to the Accreditation Procedure published
Following the last two years of implementation of the Architecture Program Accreditation Procedure in Australia and New Zealand, a variety of amendments have been incorporated and the updated Procedural documents published in December 2019.
A summary of the amendments can be read here.
The amendments include a small number of material changes and a larger number of procedural clarifications. There has been no material change to the underpinning focus of the Procedure, which is to assess that architecture programs are designed to enable a graduate to achieve the required 37 Performance Criteria of the National Standard of Competency for Architects.
The complete updated procedural document set can be downloaded from this link. This 58 page PDF contains the main procedural document and all supporting guidance documents in a single PDF.
Previously issued clarification documents are now withdrawn.
