Several regulations concerning architects have entered into force over the past few days concerning how the profession is defined, its minimum requirements, and the governing body responsible for granting warrants.

Regulations were established regarding warrants issued to architects, ensuring that they are in line with the requirements of the Periti Act of 2021. These regulations provide guidelines for those intending to study to become an architect, by distinguishing between two routes for the profession, those being Perit Arkitett and Perit Inġinier Ċivili. It also established minimum qualifications of core subjects required by students for a warrant.

These regulations also reflect changes which have been made at the respective University of Malta study units.

Additional regulations which have entered into force are those that regulate the work of the Periti Warranting Board, which is responsible for issuing warrants to architects. One of the responsibilities of the Board is to publish the register of all the warranted Periti every year on the Government Gazette.

The Board is also required to notify the Chamber of Architects of the issuance of new warrants every week, and to verify the qualifications of each applicant. Furthermore, the regulations introduce the procedure in which the Chamber of Architects organises an election to appoint its representatives on the Periti Warranting Board.

These regulations were created following consultations between the Ministry of Public Works and Planning, and the Chamber of Architects, and concern the transposition of provisions regarding the mutual recognition of architects’ qualifications from certain countries in accordance with EU directives.
