The UK Government has announced new sanctions aimed at restricting Russia's access to professional business services, including architecture.

On 30 September 2022, the UK Government announced additional sanctions to include blocking Russia from accessing services sectors including architecture and engineering. 

RIBA President, Simon Allford, said: "Whilst many of our members have already taken proactive steps and suspended their work and projects in the country, all Members and Chartered Practices must now ensure they adhere to the new restrictions. Please note that this adherence will be a legal obligation and failure to comply will result in serious consequences, including being in breach of RIBA Codes." 

Architects are advised to consider their clients and review their live contracts to avoid being in breach of the new restrictions which can result in serious penalties.
