Procedures for Chartered Linguists called for audit

As part of CIOL’s quality assurance procedures to ensure standards for Chartered Linguist registration are maintained, we call a random selection of Chartered Linguists for audit on a regular basis.

If you have been called for audit, we will have notified you of the date by which the evidence required to support your continued registration as a Chartered Linguist must be received. Please ensure that the evidence requested is submitted by this date otherwise your registration may be affected.
