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.
Signature and NRCPD have reached a new phase in their evolution. After much thought, the Board of Trustees have agreed to change the structure of the charity to enable a greater focus on the development of Signature as an awarding body and the transition of NRCPD to full independence as a regulator of communication and language professionals. As part of this process, Signature and NRCPD will become separate companies with their own dedicated leadership.
The Board is still in negotiations with Signature about our governance arrangements. The main points have been agreed and we are working on the detail.
