Department of Environment, Community and Local Government
482. To ask the Minister for Environment, Community and Local Government if he has received reports from the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland and-or the Society of Chartered Surveyors of Ireland in relation to the cases put forward by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists; if any determination has been made regarding the case put forward by the CIAT; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26090/14]
My Department has recently received correspondence from the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) in relation to their proposal to set up a register for architectural technologists. A proposal has also been received from the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland in relation to this matter. My Department is currently considering both sets of proposals and expects to be in position to engage with both representative bodies and other relevant stakeholders in relation to this matter shortly. I have not received correspondence from the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland in relation to this matter.
