Duties in Accordance with Regulations

Every public body named under the Act has a statutory duty to comply with the Regulations made by the Minister for Culture, Heritage and Gaeltacht under section 9(1) of the Act.

In accordance with the Regulations, public bodies have a duty to ensure that their:

  • stationery (notepaper, compliment slips, fax cover sheets, file covers and other folders, labels and envelopes),
  • signage and
  • recorded oral announcements are provided in Irish or bilingually by specific dates set out under the Regulations.

It is not sufficient for public bodies to provide recorded oral announcements, new stationery and/or new signage in English only after the appropriate dates set out in these Regulations. They must either be provided in Irish only or in Irish and English.
