Our objective is to promote the profession of interior design at the highest level of competence

Intellectual Property

The SBID Intellectual Property (IPP) initiative is a global campaign to prevent IP theft in the interior design industry. Developed in association with TM – Eye, City of London Police, Trading Standards and the Intellectual Property Office, the venture will assist the industry to obtain objective evidence of design ownership and raise awareness of what designers need to do to properly protect their work.

The SBID Intellectual Property initiative was relaunched on Tuesday 21 November 2017 at the House of Commons, Westminster London.
