Interior design work is exempted from the types of work regulated
under the laws governing the practice of architecture. The bill modifies
the interior design exemption to remove an inconsistency in the language
of that exemption whereby one portion of the exemption requires that
interior designers not be engaged in work that affects the life safety of

building occupants and another portion of the exemption requires that
interior designers engage in their work with due concern for the life
safety of the occupants of the building. The bill removes the language of
the first portion and retains the language of the second portion of the
The bill authorizes a city, city and county, or regional building
authority to reject a building permit application filed by an interior
designer only for a reason provided by law.
The bill also modifies the eligibility criteria for interior designers
by removing references to educational requirements. The national
certification requirement that is maintained in the statute itself includes
educational requirements.
Finally, the bill modifies the description of nonstructural or
nonseismic work that is within an interior designer's scope of practice.
