Model Language Documents

To assist member boards in their legislative efforts, NCIDQ prepares model language documents that boards and coalitions can use when drafting language for their jurisdiction.

Core Provisions of Interior Design Registration – Model Legislation

This document is intended as a guide and to serve as an outline of sections which should be incorporated into any practice legislation undertaken regarding interior design. Within the sections are suggestions for language for that section with footnotes relating to various choices and legislation that may already be in place in the United States and Canada.

Core Provisions of Interior Design Registration – Model Regulatory Board Rules & Regulations

This document is intended as a guide for regulatory boards to define and establish the details and particulars of their legislation, within those boundaries set by the lawmakers. Unlike jurisdictional statutes or laws which require legislative process for any changes, regulatory board rules can be modified, amended and revised by the board to respond to the needs of administering the law.

Practice Analysis

NCIDQ periodically surveys the profession to ensure that the examination is relevant to current practice. When necessary, modifications are made to the exam. NCIDQ conducted a practice analysis in 2008. Click here to read the current Practice Analysis Research Report.
