Building Regulations Amendments

Stephen Donnelly (Wicklow, Independent)

372. To ask the Minister for Environment, Community and Local Government in view of his recent statement that he will make a decision very shortly about whether architectural technologists will be recognised on a list of assigned certifiers, if he will provide a date by which that decision will be made; if he will provide details of the data he is using to inform this decision; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26745/14]

Phil Hogan (Minister, Department of Environment, Community and Local Government; Carlow-Kilkenny, Fine Gael)

I refer to the reply to Question No. 76 of 5 June 2014 which deals comprehensively with the matter raised. As clearly indicated in that reply, I have asked my Department to give immediate consideration to the proposals for separate voluntary registers of architectural technologists, as put forward recently by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists and the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland, and to engage with both professional bodies and other relevant stakeholders in relation to the matter shortly. My Department will respond formally to both professional bodies in the coming week.
