Application for registration in the list of architects (specialization in architecture)

The protected professional title "architect/architect" may only be held by those who are entered under the name in the list of architects of the Lower Saxony Chamber of Architects, the corresponding list in another federal state or the list of external service providers:

The same applies to word links with the job title or similar designations. The relevant regulations can be found in particular in Section 1 of the NArchtG.

In order to protect consumers, this ensures that only sufficiently qualified persons practise the profession under the professional title 'architect/architect' and that they comply with certain professional rules. However, such protection of the professional title makes it necessary for the Chamber of Architects to require the invitees to prove their qualifications, usually by:

- the completion of at least 4 years of study,

- completing a professional activity of at least 2 years

- the attendance of certain training measures.

With the registration you become a member of the Chamber. In connection with the membership, the architects have the building template authorization in accordance with Section 53 (3) No. 1 of the Lower Saxony Building Code (NBauO).

Type of employment

The list of architects is entered in one of the following four types of employment, depending on your activity:

  • freelance
