Code Of Conduct

The South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP) has, in terms of the requirements of Section 27(1) of the Architectural Profession Act, 2000 (Act 44 of 2000), made the rules set out in Board Notice 28 of 2004.
Registered persons and architectural practices are subject to the disciplinary supervision of the SACAP. It is an overriding obligation under the rules that in carrying out professional work, a registered person is expected to act competently and with integrity.
It is therefore expected that a registered person shall refrain from conduct, which would in the opinion of the SACAP be detrimental to the esteem, dignity and/or professionalism of the architectural profession, or would tend to bring the architectural profession into disrepute.
