- The Competition Authority Answers to Architects' Alliance Complaint (April 2010)


  "When the policy of statutory registration for architects was debated,
  we argued strenuously that the registration body should be completely independent of professional representation.
  This was precisely to avoid conflicts of interest arising between the RIAI’s dual roles as regulator and representative body.
  Unfortunately, our recommendation on this matter was not implemented.
