Schemes Confirmed

The following language schemes have been confirmed under section 11 of the Official Languages Act 2003.

These statutory schemes remain in force for a period of three years or until a new scheme has been confirmed by the Minister for Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.

The Minister has the right at any time, and no later than 6 months before the scheme expires, to direct the public body to review its current scheme and to prepare a new draft scheme. Where there is a change in the functions of a public body the Minister may, by notice in writing to the public body, propose amendments to its language scheme.

On the 23 August 2016, the Minister asked Transport Infrastructure Ireland, under Section 16 of the Act, to amend the Language Scheme which was confirmed with The National Roads Authority, to take into account, changes made to this public body’s functions.

The Minister asked the following government departments to include their new functions in the draftschemes they are currently preparing: Department of Agriculture, Marine and Food; Department of Justice and Equality.

The Office of An Coimisinéir Teanga monitors the provision of services as promised by public bodies under the agreed schemes. The public bodies listed below under the names and with the functions which they had when the schemes were confirmed.
