About Us

The Regulatory Centre for Irish Sign Language Interpreters Ireland CLG has been established for the purpose of maintaining the Register of Irish Sign Language Interpreters (RISLI), a voluntary, national, professional register.

The registration system is referenced in the 2017 Irish Sign Language Act (referred to as an ‘accreditation scheme’) and the National Disability Inclusion Strategy 2017 – 2021.


RISLI aims to:

  • protect users of interpreting services through a standards-based registration system
  • set and ensure adherence to standards for the provision of ISL by public bodies
  • support public bodies to facilitate the use of professional ISL services so the Deaf community can exercise their rights and entitlements
  • support professional ISL interpreters to meet and maintain standards
  • promote social inclusion of ISL users including access to public bodies
