Welcome to the Scottish Register of Language Professionals with the Deaf Community, SRLPDC. We are a registering body that monitors, supports and regulates language professionals who work within the BSL community across the whole of Scotland. We are known as The Scottish Register for short.

We have a number of different registration categories – including BSL/ English sign language interpreters (qualified and trainee), Deafblind interpreters/ communicators, Lipspeakers, Interpreting Agencies and so on.

Although registration of interpreters and associated language professionals is not mandatory by law, SRLPDC feels that it is best practice to engage professionals who can guarantee appropriate levels of qualification, PVG membership, engagement in CPD and holding professional insurance. This serves to protect consumers, providers, and of course the Deaf community across the board.

The Scottish Register of Language Professionals with the Deaf Community (SRLPDC or “The Scottish Register” for short) was formally established in May 2020.

Prior to that, we were part of the Scottish Association of Sign Language Interpreters (SASLI). This was a dual function organisation, holding both registration and membership roles. However, as part of the Scottish Government’s development in relation to the BSL (Scotland) Act 2015, we opted to become a registering –only body serving the whole of Scotland.
