The APEC Architect Project is intended to facilitate the provision of architectural services between participating economies around the Pacific Rim. On this website you can find out how this works and what is involved for senior architects to participate.

The fundamental idea behind the project is that using the APEC Architect Framework participating economies are able to enter into bilateral or multi-lateral arrangements which allow senior architects in these economies to access fast-track cross-border registration procedures.

The participating economies in the APEC Architect Project are:

Australia, Canada, People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong China, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, 
New Zealand, Republic of the Philippines, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, United States of America

To authenticate an APEC Architect, go to the APEC Architect Register via the architect's home economy among those listed above.

To become an APEC Architect, senior architects should contact their local APEC Architect Monitoring Committee via the participating economies listed above.
