Registrants agree not to hold NRPSI Ltd responsible for any use the information on the public record is put to by a third party and agree that any personal information Registrants have asked to be displayed on the open access on-line register is at their own risk.
Registrants should recognise their responsibility as professional interpreters to ensure that the information on the on-line Register is correct, up-to-date and an honest and fair representation of their skills and experience and must inform NRPSI immediately if this information changes.
NRPSI reserves the right to remove any information not verified by us, including qualifications, CPD, and unregistered languages and to remove inappropriate content.
