The Conservation Register has three tiers of specialism, open to any architects registered with ARB UK.
To be a Specialist Conservation Architect (SCA), you need an authoritative knowledge of conservation practice and extensive experience of working with historic buildings.
To be a Conservation Architect (CA), you need in-depth knowledge and experience of working with historic buildings.
A Conservation Registrant (CR) has an awareness of the issues involved in working with historic buildings. This level is not accredited, but is for people who intend to progress in the field of conservation. To be a Conservation Registrant, you need to have attended a conservation course approved by RIBA.

Reaccreditation is required for all three levels every five years. You can apply for reaccreditation using our form.
