The National Flag of The Netherlands
Although architecture can be freely practised by anyone (there is no protection of the profession) the title of 'architect', is protected. Anyone, whether Dutch or foreign, wishing to call themselves an architect, must be enlisted in the legal register, the SBA.
EC-qualified architects are eligible to register in the Netherlands, as there is a 'mutual recognition of diplomas' between EU member states.
