New Legislation Recognizes Registered Interior Designers

June 21, 2010

The State of Georgia has passed HB 231, a law that will allow registered interior designers to draft, seal and sign their own technical drawings for state approval. The bill was signed into law on June 2, 2010, and passed by a vote of 122 to 21.

According to Ryan Day, associate director of government and public affairs at American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), “Previous requirements called for architectural or structural review even though there were no structural alterations in the design plans. These requirements significantly inflated project costs and increased costs for consumers.”

In order to become a registered interior designer in the state of Georgia a designer must complete formal education in technical aspects of interior design, work under another registered designer for a specific time period and pass the certification exam.
