The National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) recently welcomed the addition of six new member boards to the Council. The Oklahoma Board of Architects, Landscape Architects and Interior Designers; the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico Board of Examiners of Interior Designers-Decorators; Professional Interior Designers Institute of Manitoba; the Interior Designers of Alberta; the Association of Interior Designers of Nova Scotia and the Association of Registered Interior Designers of New Brunswick joined the Council this year, increasing the number of member boards to 27 from the U.S. states and Canadian provinces. Oklahoma was approved by the Council’s members during the summer, with four Canadian provinces joining in October and Puerto Rico joining in November.

NCIDQ’s members are U.S. state and Canadian provincial regulatory boards that regulate the interior design profession. These boards represent most of the 26 U.S. states and seven Canadian provinces that legally recognize interior designers.

“I’m thrilled to welcome our newest members,” says Jan Bast, NCIDQ President. “Our members are crucial partners with us in our efforts to protect the public health, safety and welfare. Not only do they discuss and vote on issues affecting the Council at our Annual Meeting, but they also contribute volunteers to our committees that create our exams and other programs and services to interior designers and emerging professionals.”

Oklahoma’s interior design title act, passed in 2006, restricts use of the title “interior designer” to registered individuals who have been qualified by education, experience and examination. Oklahoma’s 11-member board includes one interior designer, two landscape architects, seven architects and one
public member. “Oklahomans in the market for interior design services deserve the ability to evaluate credentials when determining whom to hire, and NCIDQ sets the recognized standard of competence,” says Martina Gangel, the board’s interior designer member.

The Puerto Rico Board of Examiners of Interior Designers-Decorators regulates the design profession somewhat differently than the United States and the Canadian provinces. A regulatory board is present, established by the Commonwealth legislature; however a professional membership society is governmentally mandated to enforce the law.

The four Canadian provinces, Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia bring the total of Canadian member boards to seven. Alberta is governed by the Interior Designers of Alberta Association Act, which was passed in 1960. The Professional Interior Designers Institute of Manitoba regulates the title “Professional Interior Designer.” The Association of Registered Interior Designers of New Brunswick Act marked the 20th anniversary of its enactment this year. New Brunswick regulates the title “Registered Interior Designer.” The Association of Interior Designers of Nova Scotia follows the Interior Designers Act, passed in 2003. Nova Scotia regulates the title “Interior Designer” as well as the actual practice of interior design, including the right to stamp and submit drawings for building permit.

The NCIDQ Examination is used by professionals to demonstrate meeting an exam standard for state registration/licensure as well as for individual credentialing. Passage of the exam results in the NCIDQ Certificate—the mark of a professional interior designer. The NCIDQ Certificate facilitates mobility for interior designers, which is critical in today’s economy, and it is required for professional association membership and many design firm and teaching positions.

NCIDQ (ncidq.org) is an organization of regulatory boards and provincial associations in the United States and Canada whose core purpose is to protect the health, life safety and welfare of the public by establishing standards of competence in the practice of interior design. More information about the organization may be found at the NCIDQ Website.
