The Iowa Interior Design Examining Board was created as a Title Act in 2006. A person shall not use the title of registered interior designer or any title or device indicating or representing in any manner that the person is a registered interior designer or is practicing as a registered interior designer unless the person is a registered interior designer.  Here we have resources, information about applications, and disciplinary action for interior designers.
