ComReg and an Ghaeilge
ComReg comes under the remit of the Official Languages Act 2003 (The Act). The Act requires named public bodies to provide services to the public through Irish in three different ways: Regulations, Direct Duties and Language Schemes. ComReg takes every step necessary to fulfill these duties. You will find below information on the services we provide as Gaeilge as well as on those which will be available between now and the end of ComReg’s Irish Language Scheme 2020-2023.
Our activities centre on business and domestic users of electrical communications and postal services as well as service providers. ComReg provides a service as Gaeilge to anyone who wishes to carry out their business with us through Irish. ComReg also fulfils our duties under the Official Languages Act through our language scheme and our staff members – those who speak Irish and who don’t.
Consumer Services: Consumers can call 01 804 9668 or e-mail email@example.com to avail of services as Gaeilge.
ComReg’s Irish Language Scheme 2020-2023
ComReg’s Irish Language Scheme was agreed on 21 December 2020. The commitments made under ComReg’s Irish Language Scheme are wide-ranging. The primary, secondary and tertiary navigation on the website is available as Gaeilge. Further information and services will be available in Irish on the site during the scheme, with the main focus being on consumer information and services. A certain percentage of press releases issued by ComReg will be issued bilingually during the scheme. It is hoped to raise this percentage in future schemes depending on resources. The scheme will remain in force for a period of 3 years or until such a time as a new scheme has been confirmed by the Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
More bilingual tweets will be sent from our Twitter account.
