CIDQ collaborated with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and

the International Interior Design Association (IIDA)

on a video series to successfully convey the interior design profession and the NCIDQ Exam. 

CIDQ takes our responsibility to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public very seriously. That is why CIDQ is a proud advocate for reasonable interior design regulation in the United States and Canada. Reasonable regulation of the interior design industry is important and necessary to protect the public in the built environment, and ensures that only competent and qualified designers can work independently in code-regulated spaces.


These videos and fact sheets provide more information and detail about what interior designers do, the importance of the NCIDQ Exam and the case for reasonable regulation, and the need for their ability to practice autonomously. Visit Regulated Jurisdictions to learn how interior design is regulated in your state or province.
