The main purpose of NRCPD is to safeguard the wellbeing and interests of deaf and deafblind people who rely on communication professionals. We do that by checking that every sign language interpreter, sign language translator, speech to text reporter, lipspeaker, interpreter for deafblind people and notetaker is properly trained to do their job safely and consistently. Communication professionals register with us to show they are appropriately qualified and committed to professional standards of practice.

While we support the statements of those in the wider deaf sector, NRCPD believe the most saddening element is the fact that millions of deaf people worldwide have been so badly let down.
