ORS 671.065
Certification based on recognition by national council or other jurisdictions


The State Board of Architect Examiners may grant a certificate of registration without examination to any person who is not registered to practice architecture in this state but is certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards or has lawfully been issued a license or certificate to practice in another jurisdiction of the United States or another country that has qualifications and licensing examinations substantially similar to those required in this state.


A person who seeks to practice architecture in this state and meets the requirements for certification in subsection (1) of this section may offer to render architectural services without being issued a certificate of registration by the board, if the architect advises the prospective client and the board in writing and submits an application for registration in this state. The person may use the title of “Architect” while offering to render architectural services, but may not represent that the person is qualified to practice under ORS 671.010 (Definitions for ORS 671.010 to 671.220) to 671.220 (Civil penalties).
