MVLP refers to a member of Visual Language Professionals.

VLP is committed to upholding quality in the language communication profession. We therefore accept full and student members who are registered and regulated by NRCPD, RBSLI or SASLI. We believe that this shows commitment to the Deaf community we serve.

RBSLI Registered

The Regulatory Body for Sign Language Interpreters & Translators (RBSLI) administers a qualified only register. RBSLI professional linguists agree to abide by a Code of Ethics and are held accountable by a Complaints Procedure. Registrants carry electronic ID cards, they have declared that they hold enhanced DBS checks and have professional indemnity insurance. RBSLI encourages reflective practice and highly recommends that registrants employ the services of a qualified supervisor or mentor.

NRCPD Registered

The National Registers of Communication Professionals working with Deaf and Deafblind People (NRCPD). These professionals have agreed to abide by a Code of Ethics/Professional Practice and complaints procedure and will have professional indemnity insurance, an NRCPD ID card and a current DBS.

SASLI Registered

As the regulatory body in Scotland, the Scottish Association of Sign Language Interpreters (SASLI) maintains the Scottish Register of SASLI’s registration categories, it sets and oversees quality and standards for registration and professional development and requests evidence of professional competence to undertake the profession effectively and sets minimum CPD requirements. Registered language and communication professionals provide reassurance to purchasers and users of the service, with the knowledge that the member has met the minimum requirements for registration and that each member is required to keep their skills updated and maintained.
