Signed in April 2008, the Canberra Accord is a document by seven accreditation/validation agencies in architectural education. The Canberra Accord is intended to facilitate the portability of educational credentials between the countries whose accreditation/validation agencies signed the Accord. It does not address matters related to professional registration or licensure. This site is designed to provide information to three groups:
- Individuals who will have completed their professional architectural education beginning January 1, 2010 in a program accredited/validated by one of the signatory systems.
- Leaders and staff of signatory agencies or organizations.
- Leaders and staff of regulatory agencies responsible for professional licensure or registration in architecture.
