The Disciplinary Committee hears allegations of unacceptable professional conduct against interpreters.
The Committee has the power (should they find that a breach has taken place) to either admonish, suspend from the register or expel from the register.
All cases are decided based on the evidence provided by both the complainant and the interpreter.
The disciplinary committees of NRPSI are:
- The Professional Conduct Committee
- The Disciplinary Committee and
- The Disciplinary Appeals Committee
Professional Conduct Committee (PCC)
The Professional Conduct Committee will investigate complaints laid against NRPSI registrants to assess whether there is evidence of a breach of the Code of Professional Conduct such as would justify consideration by the Disciplinary Committee. In some cases the PCC is able to issue warnings or recommendations.
Disciplinary Committee (DC)
The Disciplinary Committee will consider allegations of professional misconduct referred to it by the Professional Conduct Committee and make such decisions as fall within its powers.
Disciplinary Appeals Committee (DAC)
The Disciplinary Appeals Committee will decide on appeals by the Respondent against the decisions and/or actions of the Disciplinary Committee.
The details of the Committees’ terms of reference are as set out in the Disciplinary Procedures. NRPSI has developed Indicative Sanctions Guidance for use by its Disciplinary Panels when considering what sanction, if any, to impose on a Registrant.
