Graduated Implementation of Interpreter Rule Amendments

Graduated Implementation of Interpreter Rule Amendments

The Florida Supreme Court has approved graduated implementation of rules requiring persons to register with the Office of the State Courts Administrator before providing interpreter services in court and court-related proceedings. Under the Court’s March 31, 2015 Revised Opinion in SC14-1055, registration in accordance with Rule 14.200(a) will become effective October 1, 2015, as will other provisions in the rules specifically referencing compliance with the registration requirement. All other provisions became effective April 1, 2015. The full text of the rules should be consulted for a complete understanding of their impact.

Under the newly adopted rules, all interpreters holding a certified, language skilled, or provisionally approved status are now deemed to be registered. All other persons who wish to provide spoken language interpreting services in court and court-related proceedings should diligently pursue steps necessary to complete orientation, examination, and other requirements by October 1, 2015.
