About Us

Our Role
NRPSI regulates the interpreting profession in the UK.  We are an independent, voluntary public interest body and our core role is to ensure that good standards within the profession are consistently maintained for the benefit of the public and interpreters. Read our Annual Review to learn more about the interpreting profession.


Our Responsibilities
Our core duties are:

  • Keeping the UK Register of Public Service Interpreters
  • Recognising the qualifications needed to become a professional interpreter
  • Ensuring that registered interpreters meet our standards for professional conduct and practice
  • Investigating complaints about an interpreter’s conduct or competence
  • Promote the role of the Regulator and the importance of registration to ensure understanding of added value to the profession and society


NRPSI is a not-for-profit organisation funded entirely by the registration fees that interpreters pay to register and remain on the register.
