New Mexico requires all signed language interpreters to be licensed in order to protect Deaf and Hard of Hearing consumers.

Practicing without a license is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 364 days in jail and/or up to a $1000 fine. Interpreting is defined as any form of facilitating communication in a visual form, regardless of the individual’s job title or position description.
