RegAI status is the benchmark standard for architectural ironmongery and one which lies at the very heart of what the GAI stands for – the highest possible standards of education and professionalism. This status requires that every architectural ironmonger is a qualified GAI Diploma holder and has been able to prove they are fully up-to-date with industry standards, regulations and legislation.
Attendance at Institute of Architectural Ironmongers Branch meetings is an integral part of being a Registered Architectural Ironmonger within the UK. The IAI currently have branches in the South West, South Central, South East, Midlands, North West, North East, Wales, Hong Kong, Ireland (Northern and the Republic). Check the calendar for upcoming meeting dates.
