Ofcom approves Sign Language Interactions as 999 BSL service provider

Sign Language Interactions, who own the SignVideo service which helped set up BSL Health Access, has been approved as a provider of a new 999 video relay service (VRS).

The sign-off from the communications regulator Ofcom, announced on Thursday, comes after the watchdog consulted on plans to approve the company in November.

“Taking into account Sign Language Interactions’ formal application (including further submissions) and all the responses received to the consultation, we have decided to approve Sign Language Interactions’ proposed service for the purposes of General Condition C5.
