ArmInfo. The Urban Development Committee of Armenia does not comply with the requirements of the Law on the activities of architects. With a similar statement on January 17 at a working discussion organized by the Bright Armenia faction, Chairman of the Chamber of Architects Mkrtich Minasyan stated.
According to him, draft amendments to the Laws on licensing and on the activities of architects. "But what is the meaning of the laws if they are not implemented," said the President of the Chamber. He cited the fact that The Chamber of Architects officially started to fulfill its duties on May 16. Last year, four members of the Qualification Commission were elected at the structure's congress, and immediately after the congress they took up their immediate duties stipulated by law. However, 255 architects and 110 designers have already obtained a license, 25 more architects and 15 designers have already been prepared, and it would be possible to discuss them. However, the Urban Planning Committee is in no hurry to approve the procedure exams. Since September 25 last year, this procedure has been in the Committee, from which there is still no answer, no greetings. "But what is it about when the Law on architectural activity spells this right in black and white?", the architect asks.
He also expressed his bewilderment by the fact that the Committee has developed amendments to the Law on licensing, which provides for the introduction of license forms of the first, second and third categories. The right to grant these licenses will be the prerogative of the Committee. "Let's adopt this law, but why is the work of people being delayed, and who said that the current law is bad," the head of the Chamber expressed outrage.
