A professional license bearing the registration number, date of issuance, expiry date and duly signed by the chairman of the Board, shall likewise be issued to every registrant, who has paid the required fees.

(c) No interior designer shall sign his name, affix his seal or use any other method of signature on plans, specifications or other documents made by or under another interior designer's supervision unless the same is made in such manner as to clearly indicate the part of such work actually performed by him; and no person, except the interior designer in charge shall sign for any branch of the work or any function of interior design practice not actually performed by him. The interior designer in charge shall be fully responsible for all plans, specifications, and other documents issued under his seal or authorized signature. The Board shall formulate, adopt and promulgate all necessary rules and regulations for the effective implementation of the provisions relating to the design of the seal, the signing and sealing of drawings, specifications, reports and other documents by interior designers. (d) Drawings and specifications duly signed, stamped or sealed as instruments of service are the property and documents of the interior designer, whether the project for which they were made is executed or not. No person, without the written consent of the interior designer or author of said documents, shall duplicate
10 10 or make copies of said documents for use in the repetition of and for other projects or buildings, whether executed partly or in whole. (e) All drawings, specifications and other documents to be used for the construction, remodelling or refurbishing of interiors shall be signed and sealed by a licensed interior designer.

It shall issue a written statement setting forth in detail the reasons for such action, a copy of which shall be incorporated in the records of the Board. A party whose rights are adversely affected by such action of the Board may apply for relief with the Court of Appeals after having exhausted administrative remedies. SEC. 24. Suspension and Revocation of Certificates, Cancellation of Temporary/Special Permit. The Board shall have the power, upon due notice and hearing, to revoke or suspend the certificate of registration of an interior designer, or to cancel a temporary/special permit for any cause specified in the preceding section, or for the use or perpetration of any fraud or deceit in obtaining a certificate of registration, or for gross ignorance, negligence or for unprofessional, unethical or dishonorable conduct; chronic inebriety or habitual use of drugs; abetment of the illegal practice of interior design; violation of the provisions of this Act, its rules and regulations and other policies of the Board and the Commission and the Code of Ethics for Interior Designers: Provided, however, That such action of the Board shall be subject
11 11 to appeal to the Commission, whose decision shall be final but without prejudice to the right of the aggrieved party to apply with the Court of Appeals for appropriate relief. ARTICLE V PRACTICE OF INTERIOR DESIGN SEC. 25. Vested Rights: Automatic Registration of Practicing Interior Designers.

SEC. 28. Integration of the Interior Design Profession. The interior design profession shall be integrated into one (1) national organization which shall be recognized by the Board and accredited by the Commission as the one and only integrated and accredited association of interior designers. An interior designer duly registered with the Board shall automatically become a member of the integrated national organization and shall receive the benefits and privileges appurtenant thereto upon payment of the required fees and dues. Membership in the integrated organization shall not be a bar to membership in other associations of interior designers. SEC. 29. Foreign Reciprocity. No foreign interior designer shall be issued a temporary license to practice the interior design profession or consultancy thereof or be entitled to any of the rights and privileges under this Act unless the country of which he is a subject or citizen specifically permits Filipino interior designers to practice within its territorial limits on the same basis as the subjects or citizens of such foreign state or country. SEC. 30. Coverage of Temporary/Special Permits. Foreign nationals who have gained entry in the Philippines to perform professional services as interior designers or consultants in foreign-funded or assisted projects of the government, or employed or engaged by Filipino or foreign contractors or private
13 13 firms, shall, before assuming his duties, functions and responsibilities as interior designer or consultant, secure a special temporary permit from the Professional Regulation Commission through the Board of Interior Design, to practice his profession in connection with the project to which he was commissioned: Provided, That certain conditions are satisfied as follows: (a) That he is a citizen or subject of a country which specifically permits Filipino professionals to practice his profession within their territorial limits, on the same basis as the subjects or citizens of such foreign state or country; (b) That he is legally qualified to practice interior design in his own country, and that his expertise is necessary and advantageous to our country particularly in the aspects of technology transfer and specialization; and (c) Foreign nationals shall be required to work with a Filipino counterpart and professional fees and services, and expenses of documentation pertaining to the project shall be shared by both foreign and Filipino interior designers, including liabilities and taxes due to the Philippine government, if any, according to their participation in, or professional services rendered to, the project. SEC. 31. Appropriations. Such sums as may be necessary to carry out the provisions of this Act shall be included in the General Appropriations Act of the year following its enactment into law and thereafter. ARTICLE VI FINAL PROVISIONS SEC. 32. Enforcement. The Professional Regulation Commission shall be the enforcement agency of the Board. As such, the Commission shall implement the concerned provisions of this Act, enforce its implementing rules and regulations as adopted by the Board, conduct investigations on complaints including violations of the Code of Conduct of the profession and prosecute when so warranted.
14 14 SEC. 33. Penalties. In addition to the administrative sanctions imposed under this Act, any person who violates any of the provisions of this Act shall, upon conviction, be penalized by a fine of not less than Fifty thousand pesos (P50,000) nor more than Two hundred thousand pesos (P200,000), or imprisonment of not less than six (6) months nor more than three (3) years, or both fine and imprisonment at the discretion of the court. SEC. 34. Separability Clause. If any clause, provision, paragraph or part hereof shall be declared unconstitutional or invalid, such judgment shall not affect, invalidate or impair any other part hereof, but such judgment shall be merely confined to the clause, provision, paragraph or part directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment has been rendered. SEC. 35. Repealing Clause. All laws, decrees, executive orders and other administrative issuances and parts thereof which are inconsistent with the provisions of this Act are hereby modified, superseded or repealed accordingly. SEC. 36. Effectivity.
