EU architects' qualifications will be recognised after a 'no deal' Brexit

Chief executive Alan Vallance welcomed the “much-needed clarity” on what will happen when the current system of reciprocal recognition – the Mutual Recognition of Professional Qualifications (MRPQ) Directive – lapses in the event of a “no deal” Brexit.
