Proposed Interior Design Legislation

A proposal to license the practice of interior design is actively before the Minnesota Legislature. The main purpose of the legislation is to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of people in public spaces.

Please take the time to write to your state representatives. The proposed Interior Design legislation is Senate File 842 and House File 1052. You may reference this file number in your correspondence. To read the bills visit the links above. See sample letter

Existing Title Act

Minnesota currently has a Title Act, passed in 1992, protecting the title “Certified Interior Designer”(CID) in our state. Designers cannot use the title CID without being certified by the state, but the title act does NOT preclude others from practicing interior design. Interior Designers must have a minimum of six years education and experience, and have passed the NCIDQ exam to become a CID. The Title Act identifies to the public those interior designers who have voluntarily met the minimum standards for professional practice in the design of public spaces in Minnesota. For more information please reference the State of MN Statutes and Rules for the AELSLAGID Board.
