Welcome To The California Architects Boards

Rules of Conduct

The rules of professional conduct for California architects were adopted under Title 16, California Code of Regulations section 160. The Board adopted these rules to protect the public by setting out areas of behavior for which an architect risks being disciplined. Architects are required to comply with these rules covering competency, misconduct, conflict of interest, full disclosure, and copyright infringement. The actual regulatory language is available on page 51 to 53 (53 to 55 of the file) of the Architects Practice Act.
