A certificate holder's certificate expires if the annual renewal fee is not paid to DARS DHHS by the expiration date. When a certificate expires for nonpayment of the annual certificate renewal fee, the expiration letter is mailed via certified mail. Continuing to interpret in any situation where an interpreter certificate is required is a violation of DARS rules when the only certification held is an expired BEI certificate.
State mail is not forwarded. If a certificate holder has moved, he or she must notify DARS DHHS of the address change.
