ACE commentary on the Strategy for the Sustainable Competitiveness of the Construction Sector and its Enterprises  

This Reference Document was approved by the General assembly of ACE (GA1/16) on 22nd April 2016. It updates the ACE European Deontological Code originally adopted by the General Assembly of the ACE on the 19 November 2005. Its contents are not binding on the Member Organisations of the ACE but it is a Reference Document for consultation in the event that a Member Organisation is reviewing or writing a Deontological code for its own use. 

Joint Declaration signed by ACE, the European Construction Industry Federation (FIEC), the European Federation of Building and Wood Workers (EFBWW), the European Builders’ Confederation (EBC), the European Federation of Engineering Consultancy Associations (EFCA), the European Council of Civil Engineers (ECCE) and the Ministry for Social Affairs and Employment of the Netherlands 

Taking into account the Staff Working Paper published by the European Commission in October 2013, the aim of this Policy Paper is to provide a brief commentary on issues that arise in relation to professional liability and indemnity insurance for architects in the EU. 

Through this Declaration, ACE, ARCASIA and AUA call on the UIA Council and the Vision & Strategy Council to continue to work on concrete proposals to strengthen and include the existing regional architectural organisations in an effective mutual cooperation. They commit to further develop mutual multi- and bilateral cooperation between themselves.

Declaration signed by the Presidents of ACE, the Chamber of Architects in Bulgaria, the Bulgarian Chamber of Engineers in the Investment Design and the Bulgarian Construction Chamber.

ACE Member Organisations have adopted a Quality Charter on the Provision of Architectural Services to Society as an outward sign of the profound commitment of the profession to ensuring that it lives up to the expectations of society by assuring that the services it provides to its clients are quality based and that the construction outcome makes a positive contribution to the quality of live of the citizens of Europe.
