CPC Tenet 7.2 and 2.6: Laws, Policies, and, Rules Affecting The Profession and Judicially Provide I&R
"The guiding principles behind the Code of Professional Conduct (CPC) “represent concepts of confidentiality, linguistic and professional competence, impartiality, professional growth and development, ethical business practices, and the rights of participants in interpreted situations to informed choice. The driving force behind the guiding principles is the notion that the interpreter will do no harm” (www.rid.org). This session will center around two particular tenets: · Tenet 2.6, Judiciously provide information or referral regarding available interpreting or community resources without infringing upon consumers’ rights. · Tenet 7.2 Keep abreast of laws, policies, rules, and regulations that affect the profession. In the past several years a number of state laws have passed that affect the deaf community thus may impact the interpreter profession. In an effort to stay abreast of laws, policies, rules, and regulations we will look into those that affect both interpreters and the deaf community. In addition, we will cover a number of resources interpreters may use in order to judiciously provide information and referral."
