What exactly are "AIIC conditions"?

Does anyone have a comprehensive list of what it means?

Also, how are those conditions of interest to interpreters, not just AIIC?

I just found this checklist for sponsors for aiic candidatures (page 6):

  • abides by AIIC's rules on manning strength
  • treats all information not available to the public as confidential
  • only accepts work for which he/she is qualified
  • abides by AIIC's rules when recruiting other colleagues
  • affords colleagues assistance and collegiality
  • does not bring the Association or the profession into disrepute
  • avoids the systematic use of relay
  • acts with integrity and professionalism

AIIC has published a Code of Ethics and a list of Professional Standards on its website. Taken together, these are meant to guide intepreters when determining the conditions under which they are to work.

Clients themselves are sometimes not aware of the needs of interpreters, so it is important for interpreters to be aware of them and to not hesitate to share this information with clients when contacted about a possible job.

The documents can be found here:
