CCIDC, the California Council for Interior Design Certification, founded 25 years ago by the interior design profession in California after the passage of SB 153, a law that created into statute the legally recognized title of “Certified Interior Designer”.  The Title Act came about in order to protect the right to practice and submit for permits for all interior designers in California, and was promoted for the most part by commercial interior designers, but residential designers as well.  All of the interior design professional organizations such as ASID, IIDA (IBD and ISID at that time), IDS, and many other groups and individuals supported and funded the coalition that achieved the passage of this bill.  Like all State boards and non-profit boards, CCIDC is accountable to the sunset review process enacted by both the Assembly and Senate of the California legislature.  Reviewed every 5 years, or as determined by the legislature for compliance with the statute they administer and are subject to sunset (elimination) if determined to be out of compliance.  CCIDC is also subject to the Bagley–Keene Act, a statute specifically enacted only for the operational oversight of all California State boards and commissions.
