Law, Ethics and Associated Duties

What's happening?


The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa guarantees rights to all the citizens of South Africa. One of these rights is a healthy, safe and sustainable environment. Buildings as part of the build environment therefore must satisfy this requirement. Apart from The Constitution are several other Acts and Regulations that have implications for the Architectural Professional if not complied with. How does the Architectural Professional deal with this?

This workshop will assist the architectural professional to maintain, develop or increase knowledge, problem-solving, technical skills or professional performance standards regarding these requirements.

The aim of the workshop is to acquaint participants with knowledge about the requirements of the Constitution other legislation and how to incorporate these requirements into the standard services that they provide to their clients.

Topics that will be discussed include:

• The SA Constitution
• The Architectural Profession Act
• Code of Conduct Board Notice
• CPD Board Notice (2017)
• Compliance with The National Building Regulations (Forms etc)
• Professional – Client Agreements
• Standard Architectural Services vs Additional Services
• OHS Construction Regulations 2014 and the duties of the Designer
