Annual Renewal and Compliance for California Interpreters due December 31, 2014.

SAN FRANCISCO _ Certified and Registered Interpreters enrolled in the Judicial Council’s Master List should have received the Annual Renewal and Compliance packet in their inbox or mailbox.

These forms and payment must reach the Court Language Access Support Program office by December 31.

The Court Language Access Support Program sent the packets electronically in September to the email the interpreter has on file. If you have changed your email address, be sure to update it with the Judicial Council.

Renewal packets were sent via US mail if the interpreter did not have an email on file, or if the email was returned undeliverable.

The forms, fee schedule and additional information for renewing your credentials are available here.
