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.
At the end of last year we told you we were in negotiation with Signature about our governance arrangements. Both Boards agreed NRCPD should have greater independence.
Following the open meetings to talk about our plans for statutory regulation we have updated the frequently asked questions.
If you weren't able to attend one of the meetings, there will still be lots of opportunities for you to tell us what you think. The Board will consider a timetable of action at its July meeting, after which we will publish it for consultation. Your comments and suggestions will be appreciated.
