Registered Members – Existing

All Registered Interior Designers (RIDs) are required by IDIBC to maintain current knowledge of the BC Building Code. In 2019, IDIBC changed its Professional Development policy to ensure that all existing RIDs complete a BC Building Code update seminar with every substantial BCBC update (ie. 2012, 2018, etc.).

RIDs must complete an IDIBC-approved BC Building Code update seminar that includes an overview of 2018 updates to the BC Building Code. This two-hour seminar must be completed by all RIDs prior to Dec. 31, 2021.

Documentation of seminar completion will be required as part of the 2022 membership renewal process.

IDIBC will offer another online code update seminar in 2021. Date will be announced by email one to two months prior to seminar. Online registration will be available.

As of January 1, 2019, New RIDs are required to have completed an approximately 36 hour long BC Building Code course approved by IDIBC as part of their admission to IDIBC.
