The Architectural Practice Act 2009 was proclaimed in 2011. Under the Act, the board is empowered to develop codes, and in October 2012 the Minister for Housing and Urban Development approved the SA Code of conduct. The code is mandatory for all registrants in South Australia, and defines the standard of professional conduct and practice. A breach of the code by a registered person or business may be considered unprofessional conduct.
