NAD-RID Code of Professional Conduct
The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) and the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc. (RID) uphold high standards of professionalism and ethical conduct for interpreters. Embodied in this Code of Professional Conduct (formerly known as the Code of Ethics) are seven tenets setting forth guiding principles, followed by illustrative behaviors.
The NAD is the nation's premier civil rights organization of, by and for deaf and hard of hearing individuals in the United States of America.
The National Technical Institute for the Deaf is one of the eight colleges of Rochester Institute of Technology, a leading career-oriented, technological university. More than 14,000 undergraduate students from around the world, including more than 1,300 who are deaf or hard of hearing, come to campus every year to take advantage of the benefits of an RIT/NTID education.
PEPNet-Northeast, based at Rochester Institute of Technology, home of the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, is one of four regional centers funded by the Department of Education.
Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID)
RID is a national membership organization representing the professionals who facilitate communication between people who are deaf or hard of hearing and people who hear. Interpreters serve as professional communicators in a vast array of settings such as: churches, schools, courtrooms, hospitals and theaters, as well as on political grandstands and television.
RID’s function is to support our membership by providing the foundation needed to launch and sustain careers while ensuring quality service to the Deaf community.
