The Council for Interior Design Qualification (CIDQ) advocates at the state and provincial levels to educate elected officials and key stakeholders about the impact of the interior design profession and the importance of reasonable regulation. CIDQ is dedicated to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of the public in the built environment and supports policies and legislation that enable interior designers to practice to the full extent of their capabilities. Through the administration of a rigorous, objective exam that assesses the professional competency of interior designers, and active advocacy and collaboration with partner organizations, we support the certified interior designer's role in protecting the public.
