JAEIC entered into a Cooperation Agreement with NCARB.

The Japan Architectural Education and Information Center (JAEIC) and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) have been maintaining a cooperative relationship as the organization in charge of the administration of qualifying examinations for architect licenses in their respective countries. In the fall of 1995 NCARB took one step forward and made a proposal for a mutual cooperation agreement to provide a basis for strengthening the relationship between the two organizations for future consideration. JAEIC President, Masao Katayama, visited the NCARB office in the United States on March 24-26, 1997. During his three-day stay, Mr. Katayama had a chance to closely examine the Architect Registration Examination System administered by NCARB. The highlight of his visit was the signing of the Cooperation Agreement between NCARB and JAEIC, which was witnessed by NCARB President Darrel L.Smith, NCARB President-elect Ann R. Chaintreuil and Mr. Katayama.
Amid the progressive globalization of architectural business, the Cooperation Agreement will help solidify the relationship between the two organizations. Expectations are high for the new agreement which will serve as a vehicle for promoting exchanges of information and views on architect licensing requirements and other matters of mutual interest.
