Consultation description 

The regulations which specify the standards have been drafted with the aim of:

  • improving the services Welsh-speakers can expect to receive from organisations in Welsh
  • increasing the use people make of Welsh-language services
  • making it clear to organisations what they need to do in terms of the Welsh language
  • ensuring that there is an appropriate degree of consistency in terms of the duties placed on bodies in the same sectors.

We are seeking views from members of the public the organisations that will be subject to the first set of standards and anyone else with an interest in them.
