If you are registering for the first time we charge a £30 administration fee. If you register in more than one category we will charge you only the higher applicable registration fee, if you submit all your applications at the same time. If you submit applications at different times we will charge you individual fees.
The Board has set out the fees we will charge individual professionals for the year starting 1 September 2012. This is as part of a four-year plan to achieve greater consistency in our fees policy across all the professions we regulate.
Over the past two years we have kept fees the same, mindful of the pressures on communication professionals across the country, and this despite making considerable improvements to the service we offer. Our plan for the next few years is to further strengthen our regulatory functions and take a much more co-ordinated approach to promoting the benefits of registration to the public, service users and decision makers.
We continue to receive generous financial support from Signature Trustees, for which we are very grateful. This means we can resource our plans and keep increases in fees to a minimum while pursuing our ultimate aim of protecting the titles of the professions we regulate by legally reserving use of terms like Sign Language Interpreter for only those who are appropriately trained and regulated.
Fees for the period 1 September 2012 - 31 August 2013 will be:
|Registered Sign Language Interpreter||£185|
|Trainee Sign Language Interpreter||£125|
|Registered Sign Language Translator||£185|
|Trainee Sign Language Translator||£125|
|Registered Speech to Text Reporter||£135|
|Trainee Speech to Text Reporter||£75|
|Registered Interpreter for Deafblind People||£135|
|Trainee Interpreter for Deafblind People||£75|
|Registered Electronic Notetaker||£135|
|Registered Manual Notetaker||£135|
