Over the past several years, and even more recently during the Sunset Review process and CCIDC’s
strategic planning session, CCIDC has been approached to consider adding a new non-codified (not bound into statute like CID) designation for CIDs.
CCIDC is only charged with administering the current title of Certified Interior Designer as codified
into law under Section 5800 of the CBPC. However, during the Sunset Review hearings, held before the legislature in Sacramento in March 2017, CCIDC offered to work with proponents of this idea.
The purpose of the COMMERCIAL CID designation would be to signal building officials when submitting
documents for permit. The COMMERCIAL CID would be educated and tested specifically in the area of commercial design. The goal of this would be to more readily be accepted at the plan check review counter for hi-rise
tenant improvement projects, especially in the larger jurisdictions such as Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Jose.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS SURVEY IS TO HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT A COMMERCIAL CID TITLE.
