ASLI -Association of Sign Language Interpreters

This organisation, founded in 1987, aims to improve standards within the profession. Its members are sign language interpreters in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 

NRCPD/SASLI registered interpreters and translators have attained the minimum standard expected for BSL/English interpreters in the UK, hold a current enhanced DBS/CRB certificate which is available on request, are committed to continuous professional development, adhere to the NRCPD/SASLI professional code of conduct and comply with an official complaints procedure.

The NRCPD/SASLI code of conduct requires interpreters and translators to facilitate communication faithfully and impartially, maintaining strict confidentiality.

In contrast, when the family or friends of a deaf person are used to interpret for them, they will not have the same level of training, qualification or work within an ethical framework.
