What about certificates/authorization letters issued prior to the effective date of the revised chapter 388-03 WAC?
WAC 388-03-160 applies to all certified/authorized/recognized interpreters/translators, regardless of when their certificates/authorization letters were issued. The expiration date for certificates/authorization letters is four years from the effective date of the revised chapter 388-03 WAC if the requirement of WAC 388-03-160 is not met.
