The Central Council has ultimate responsibility for all matters relating to the APEC
Architect framework. The Council comprises at least one representative of each
Monitoring Committee. The Council is responsible for authorizing Monitoring Committees
to maintain their sections of the Register. Typically the Council meets every two years.
A decision to permit an economy to join the project rests with the Central Council.
The Central Council's decisions are generally reached by consensus and are not binding on
the regulatory authorities of participating economies.
The APEC Architect Central Council will operate for so long as it is acceptable and
desirable to participating economies.
The Central Council has ultimate responsibility for the operation of each
aspect of the APEC Architect framework. Its duties include the following:
Maintenance of the APEC Architect Register

architects within economies to become APEC Architects

Monitoring Committees are the constituent bodies of the Central Council.
They nominate one or more representatives to the Council, with each Monitoring
Committee entitled to one vote.
Administrative services for the project are provided by a secretariat.
To provide an equitable system for sharing the provision of administrative services among economies,
Central Council business is conducted by participating economies, which take on the role of
Secretariat on a rotational basis. The minimum period for economies to act in this capacity is two
years and they may reapply to continue for a subsequent term of office.
The Central Council Secretariat is responsible for the conduct of Council meetings and the management
of Council records, maintenance of the APEC Architect website and administration of its finances during
its term of office. It is also required to arrange for the appointment of Council members, the authorization
of Monitoring Committees and the application of quality assurance provisions from time to time, and to
act as a center of information for all APEC Architect matters.
