Discipline and questionable PCC decisions
In 2005 (Case Study 1) the PCC fell under criticism for allowing itself to become merely an instrument for executing a policy of the Board which had since its inception been the subject of criticism (see PII). In 2003 the Royal Institute of British Architects had published a paper " The Status of the Architects Registration Board" anticipating and explaining the mistakes.
