The British Institute of Interior Design (BIID), the UK's professional institute for interior designers, has launched a new national anti-bribery campaign, Kick Out The Kick-Backs. The campaign, which has been backed by the The British Institute of Kitchen Bedroom and Bathroom Installation (BIKBBI), has been launched in order to stamp out unethical practices in the interior design industry. It will offer advice to interior designers on how to recognise bribery from suppliers, and what they can do to ensure they have robust processes in place which can identify a potential criminal offence under the 2010 Bribery Act.

Harriet Forde, President of the BIID, commented: “The purpose of the Kick Out The Kick-Backs campaign is to stamp out illegal business practices that damage the entire profession in order to foster a more honest and ethical design industry. The BIID is not aiming to impose a one-size-fits-all business model on the UK interior design profession, and we recognise that different clients, regions and sectors may have different fee structures. However, we believe that greater transparency between designers and clients will lead to better working relationships that benefit designers, suppliers and clients alike.”
