(Roth D) Interior designers.
Current Text: Introduced: 2/17/2023
Status: 3/6/2023-Set for hearing April 24.
Summary: Existing law, until January 1, 2027, provides a comprehensive scheme for the certification and regulation of interior designers. Under existing law, a Certified Interior Designer may obtain a stamp from an interior design organization that includes a number that identifies and bears the name of the designer, and that stamp certifies that the Certified Interior Designer has provided the interior design organization with evidence of passage of an interior design examination and completion of certain interior design education or experience requirements.
This bill would, instead, establish the California Council for Interior Design Certification to carry out duties and responsibilities governing the stamp certification and regulation of interior designers. The bill would authorize the council to issue certifications pursuant to these provisions to applicants who provide satisfactory evidence of compliance with specified education, experience, and examination requirements. The bill would identify the individual as either a “Certified Interior Designer” or “Certified Commercial Interior Designer” if the designer has completed certain additional interior design courses and examination requirements for the commercial designation, as determined by the council.
