Please note, the registry maintains expired certifications. If a renewal application is not postmarked on or before the due date of June 30th or the annual BEI certificate expiration due date a $15 late fee will be applied.
A qualified interpreter with a BEI credential who allows it to lapse must retest unless the fully completed renewal is submitted within 90 calendar days following the date the credential expired. A qualified interpreter with an EIPA or RID credential who fails to submit a renewal within 45 calendar days must pay a reinstatement fee in addition to late fees.
If you submitted a renewal application with the appropriate documentation and fee payment, the Division pursuant to the law is using its discretion by allowing a certified interpreter to continue to work with an expired listing while the department processes your application.
