Welcome to our home page. The Maryland Board of Architects qualifies and licenses individuals seeking architectural licensure. We also issues permits to businesses practicing architecture. The Board regulates the practice of architecture under the provisions of Business Occupations and Professions Article, Annotated Code of Maryland, Title 3 and the Code of Maryland Regulations, Title 9, Subtitle 21. The Board investigates complaints against licensees, as well as complaints related to unlicensed practice. The Board may issue a reprimand, suspend or revoke a license or permit, and/or impose a fine.
