Subject to the availability of funding, the State Court Administrator shall establish a program for the certification of court interpreters. The program shall be established by rules adopted pursuant to ORS 1.002 (Supreme Court) and shall include, but not be limited to, provisions for:
Prescribing the form and content of applications for certification;
Prescribing and collecting reasonable fees for the application, examination, certification and renewal of certification for court interpreters;
Establishing a process by which an adversely affected interpreter may seek review of any decision made by the State Court Administrator on renewal, suspension or cancellation of a certificate.
An interpreter may be certified in Oregon by the State Court Administrator upon satisfactory proof that the interpreter is certified in good standing by the federal courts or by a state having a certification program that is equivalent to the program established under this section.
