"You will be asked to submit: (...)

for languages not covered by the degree(s) or diploma(s), evidence of how the language knowledge was acquired should be submitted (such as certificates or a personal statement)."


This is what you do when applying for an accreditation test. Also, you submit a CV, so your languages, stays abroad etc. will probably come up there as well.

If you want to add a language later, I don't think there is any official procedure. You just contact your head of unit either at SCIC or at the Parliament, and ask for a test. They may ask you how you've learned the language, I suppose. But I guess they also trust you that you're a professional and you won't waste their time with a language you barely know ;). Also, as an EU-accredited interpreter you may apply for grants etc. when learning a language, so your head of unit may know about your plans before you actually ask for a language addition test. Apart from that, I've heard about colleagues listening to your performance before a test is actually organized but that's not a rule.
