The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) announced "victory for interior design" this week after a regulation found an interior design license requirement to be constitutional.
Those challenging the law were unable to prove that the license requirement lacked a rational basis.
The Court stated: The Florida legislature enacted the license requirement to protect public safety by ensuring that interior designers are trained to comply with fire and building codes. Furthermore, the Institute for Justice was unable to prove that licensing the practice of interior design does not lead to improvement in the safety of interior design and compliance with building codes. Full text of the Court's decision can be found here.
IIDA continues to promote legislation to establish and maintain standards that safeguard the health, safety and well-being of the general public, define responsibility, and encourage excellence in the interior design industry.
