CCIDC Sunset Review - Nov. 2016

CCIDC Sunset Review Report
December 2016

As written into statute CCIDC is required to provide the California legislature with a detailed report on its activities every five years, or as determined by the legislature. This is the same Sunset Review process that all state boards and commissions in California must submit to, as well as all private boards.

The purpose of this report is to reassure the legislature that CCIDC has been carrying out its duties and responsibilities in accordance with BPC 5800 and to renew the certified interior designer Title Act for another
five years. The current Title Act expires on January 1, 2018. The report also provides the opportunity for the CCIDC board to address any past legislative issues associated with the current Title Act, and to inform the legislature of any new legislative issues identified by CCIDC. It is also an opportunity to educate both the legislators and legislative staff on the profession of certified interior designers.

You can review a complete copy of the CCIDC Sunset Review report
here. (12 MB .pdf)

The next step in the Sunset Review process will be for CCIDC to respond to questions raised by the legislature based upon this report in preparation for a background paper to be prepared for a joint oversight hearing by the Senate Committee on Business, Professions and Economic Development and the Assembly Committee on Business, Professions and Consumer Protection. The date of this public hearing in the State Capitol will be announced at sometime early in the new year.
