When dealing with the public in the course of an architect’s professional practice, an architect:
should not provide any endorsement of any product or service in connection with the provision of an architectural service in a misleading manner, and
should disclose in the material conveying the endorsement whether or not a fee has been received for or relating to that endorsement.
Representations concerning architectural work
An architect should not, in the architect’s professional practice, sign as checked, approved or supervised any drawings or other documents that the architect has not in fact checked, approved or supervised.
An architect should not, in the architect’s professional practice, permit the architect’s name to be used in relation to any work, document or publication in a manner that misleadingly implies authorship of, responsibility for or agreement with the content or form of, the work, document or publication.
Standards concerning professional relationships with other architects
Dealings with other architects
In any dealings with other architects in an architect’s professional practice, the architect should maintain a high standard of integrity and act honestly and fairly.
If an architect (the new architect) is assuming responsibility for the provision of an architectural service to a client from another architect who is to discontinue providing the service (the former architect), the former architect should, to the extent that it is commercially reasonable and without breaching any duty of confidentiality:
inform the new architect of any matters that the former architect could be reasonably supposed to consider important concerning the provision of the service, and
not withhold any information from the new architect that may assist the new architect to understand the history and nature of the service.
