CCIDC, the California Council for Interior Design Certification, founded in 1992, 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.”

Like all State boards and non-profit boards, CCIDC is accountable to the Assembly Business and Professions Committee and the Senate Business, Professions, and Economic Development Committee joint Sunset Review Committee. The Sunset Review oversight hearings, review the boards and bureaus under the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA).  Reviewed every 4 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.
