The Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB) is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization that works to protect the public’s health, safety and welfare by establishing and promoting professional licensure standards. Our members are the licensure boards across the United States and Canada.

We prepare, administer and score the Landscape Architect Registration Examination (L.A.R.E.) which assesses the ability of prospective licensees to protect the public’s health, safety and welfare.

We also manage a professional information system called the CLARB Council Record, through which landscape architects document and verify their education, experience, examination and licensure history. The Record helps reduce barriers to mobility by streamlining the initial and reciprocal licensure processes.

Additionally, CLARB works to defend landscape architectural licensure in support of protecting the public's health, safety, and welfare.
