Welsh language standards

On 25 July 2016, the Commission of Equality and Human Rights (EHRC) was presented by the Welsh Language Commissioner with:

Compliance Notice – Section 44 Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011

This notice

  • sets out, or refers to, one or more standards specified by the Welsh Ministers under section 26(1), and
  • requires a body (EHRC in this instance) to comply with the standard or standards set out or referred to.

The compliance notice remains in force unless, and until, it is revoked. The EHRC’s Welsh language scheme will cease to apply on 25 January 2017 the day in which the EHRC is required to comply with the standards for the first time.

Read about the Welsh Language Standards imposed on the EHRC.
