Code of Conduct

 

All of our in-house and freelance interpreters are registered with the NRCPD and adhere to the code of conduct.

The purpose of this Code of Conduct is to ensure that NRCPD (The National Registers of Communication Professionals working with Deaf and Deafblind People) regulated communication professionals carry out their work with a due regard for the rights of deaf and hearing people involved in, or affected by, all aspects of the communication process. The Code is supported by guidelines for the benefit of consumers and practitioners.


A communication professional is anyone regulated by NRCPD as a:
  • Sign Language Interpreter
  • Lipspeaker
  • Electronic or Manual Notetaker
  • Speech to Text Reporter
  • Interpreter for Deafblind People

It is a condition of registration that communication professionals confirm their agreement to abide by the Code and the accompanying guidelines.

The Code of Conduct sets out the professional and ethical principles that must underpin the work of all NRCPD registrants, for more details visit the NRCPD website.
