NRCPD exists to protect the public by regulating communication and language professionals who work with deaf and deafblind people.
We hold Registers of interpreters for deafblind people, lipspeakers, notetakers, sign language interpreters, sign language translators and speech to text reporters.
We are currently a voluntary regulator, but we want communication and language professionals to be regulated by law. For more information, read our statement of regulatory intent.
Changes to requirements for Trainee Sign Language Interpreters
NRCPD has consulted with stakeholders about the standards and requirements of Trainee Sign Language Interpreters (TSLI). Following the consultation, a working group was set up, and the feedback from the consultation informed its recommendations for changes to the requirements for TSLI, with the view of improving standards. In August 2017 the Board approved the proposed recommendations.
