It is important to understand that the regulation of interior design varies across North America. CIDQ strongly encourages interior design practitioners to be fully knowledgeable and in compliance with the requirements of the jurisdiction (states and provinces) in which they practice. It is important to check your jurisdictional requirements and register with your jurisdictional regulatory body to avoid the risk of violating regulations that may be subject to penalties. Now that you are NCIDQ Certified, take the next step to become certified, registered, or licensed within your jurisdiction to practice legally and help elevate and advocate for the profession. Find information on your specific state regulatory board or provincial regulatory body.
