Signed Language Interpreting Practices: Overview
The purpose of the New Mexico Signed Language Interpreting Practices Board is to adopt minimum standards and qualifications pertaining to the licensure of interpreters for the deaf and to ensure that members of the interpreting profession perform with a high degree of competency.
The Signed Language Interpreting Practice Board (SLIPB) originally had a requirement for a periodic sunset review by the New Mexico Legislature. In 2013, the sunset review was removed due to the passage of SB 163, making the SLIPB a permanent board. No further sunset reviews will be required, and licensure requirements are permanent.
