At  a CPD event attended by over 500 architects in the Aviva on Monday 24th February by the representative body for architects (RIAI) a keynote speaker Orla Fitzgerald suggested that under the Code of Practice issued by the Department of the Environment self-bulding would no longer be possible after 1st March 2014. This view supports the recent legal opinion received by the IAOSB.
