Chamber of architects - right to use protected professional titles by foreign companies

Service Description

A company that has neither its registered office nor a branch in Germany (foreign company) and moves to Thuringia for the temporary or occasional provision of services in the field of architecture, interior design, landscape architecture or urban planning must notify the Thuringian Chamber of Architects in writing in advance of its first activity in Thuringia.

It may only use the protected professional titles "architect", "interior architect", "landscape architect" or "urban planner", including combinations of words with them, or similar professional titles in its name or in its company if it meets comparable requirements that also apply to companies that have their registered office or a branch in Germany.

If the company fulfills comparable requirements, it shall be entered in a special register (list of foreigners) of the Chamber of Architects of Thuringia. Upon application, the company will be issued a certificate, limited to one year, stating that it is entitled to use the professional title.

The registration does not establish membership in the Chamber of Architects or in a pension fund or in any other institution.
