Pursuant to General Rule 11.1, the Interpreter Commission is convened to fulfill two primary duties:
The Washington State Supreme Court selects Commission members to represent various constituent groups in the court and interpreter communities. Each member is expected to share current information with the constituent groups they represent as well as bring current issues to the Commission for consideration.
Policy Manual: The Interpreter Program policy manual is posted on the Washington Courts website. It is divided into two parts: Certified Interpreter Program Polices Manual and Registered Court Interpreter Program Policies Manual. It constitutes the official version of policies governing the Interpreter Program (including testing and certification, continuing education requirement, court hour requirement, and discipline). The policy manual can only be amended by majority vote of the Commission.
Commission Responsibilities: Each member of the Commission is assigned to one of three committees: Issues, Discipline, or Judicial and Court Administrator Education. Commission members are not assigned to more than one committee.
