The Dutch Advertising Code is a self-regulatory organisation that formulates the rules with which advertising must comply.
Legislation regarding landscape design will be integrated in the Environment and Planning Act, which will come into effect in 2021 (see chapter 4.2.2).
The professional titles of architect, town planner, landscape architect and interior architect are protected by the Architects Title Act (1987). Only those who are registered in the Architects’ Register may use one of these titles. The aesthetic aspect of the architectural environment is protected by the Dutch Housing Act (1992), which regulates and controls the aesthetic standard of building activities. Design and creative services are also part of the Dutch creative industry. For more information on the creative industry and specific regulations and measures, see chapter 3.5.1 and 3.5.5.
