Interior Design legislation helps establish and maintain professional standards that protect the health, safety and welfare of the general public. IIDA firmly believes that legal recognition, achieved through licensing, registration, and certification brings uniformity to the profession, defines responsibility, and encourages excellence in the Interior Design industry.

In Wisconsin, a title act was put in place in 1996.  Individuals who meet minimum requirements are registered with the Department of Regulation and Licensing.  Based on their education, examination, and experience, they are recognized by the State of Wisconsin as qualified, responsible professionals and they are granted the right to use the title “Wisconsin registered interior designer.”  Consumers will know that they are working with designers who will utilize the latest information regarding their health, safety, and welfare.
