Royal Institute of British Architects Unveils Manifesto for European Parliament Elections
LONDON.- The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has unveiled its manifesto for candidates seeking seats in the elections to the European Parliament on 4 June. Based around the three themes of high quality procurement, responding to climate change and investing in skills, the manifesto sets out 28 specific tasks that can be undertaken at European level and states four main calls on the European Parliament.

The RIBA Manifesto for the European Parliament Elections calls for:

-An early revision of the Public Procurement Directives to ensure that the market for architectural services remains open, with a level playing field, especially for innovative and emerging talent.

-The full and timely delivery of funds announced in the December 2008 European Economic Recovery Plan, in the interests of creating jobs, reducing carbon emissions and reducing fuel poverty.

-The early revision of Directive 2005/36/EC on the Recognition of Professional Qualifications, with a view to revising the minimum duration of architectural studies from four years to five (or the equivalent, on a part-time basis), supplemented by two years qualifying professional practice experience.

-Mutual Recognition Agreements on architectural services, negotiated between the EU and third countries, within the context of existing of Free Trade Agreements, to be made legally binding, with a view to opening up new markets.

Speaking about the manifesto, RIBA Director, Policy & International Relations, Ian Pritchard said: "70% of UK legislation originates from the EU, so it is vital that we engage with British candidates for the European Parliament elections. This is best done at regional level and RIBA members across the country have been encouraged to disseminate our recommendations to the major parties"
