AN ACT CONCERNING REGISTERED INTERIOR DESIGNERS

SUMMARY: This act allows anyone who has obtained an interior designer's registration certificate or an architect's license from the Department of Consumer Protection to display or use any sign or seal to indicate that he or she is a registered interior designer in the state. By law, he or she may display or use any words, letters, figures, title, advertisement, or other devices to indicate registration.

The act removes the requirement that registered interior designers exhibit their certificate at the request of any interested party. It instead requires them to include their registration certificate number in any advertisement, which prior law banned. The act also allows designers to include the number in any written communication.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2012
