Government has issued two technical guidance notes in the event
of a "no deal" Brexit.
The first deals with the
system for recognising EU qualified architects in the UK if there
is no Brexit deal.
If the UK leaves the EU in March 2019 without a deal, the Mutual
Recognition of Professional Qualifications (MRPQ) Directive
(Directive 2005/36/EC) on the mutual recognition of qualifications
will no longer apply in the UK. In this event, the UK government
will maintain a system of recognition for architects with an
approved qualification from a European Economic Area (EEA) state,
provided the applicant has access to the profession in their home
The second provides practical information on the Construction Products Regulations
(CPR) and the legal requirements that would be required
if there is no Brexit deal. The Construction Products Regulations
lay down rules or standards for the marketing of construction
products harmonised and published in the Official Journal of the
European Union (OJEAU).
