Accreditation demonstrates a level of expertise and professionalism

SBID Designers purchase and specify products they can trust, not just for their design appearance but for the performance, service provided and trade partnerships. From huge projects of value to the smallest maintenance repair, our members seek three important commodities; performance, trust and value. The SBID marque of accreditation provides consumers and clients with an endorsement of product performance, reassurance of quality and additional confidence in their professional conduct. SBID accreditation can influence a designer’s procurement choices by enabling mutual business relationships with industry partners through our trusted and diverse professional network.
