Tá sé i gceist ag an Choimisiúin um Iomaíocht agus Cosaint Tomhaltóirí (CICT) scéim a dhréachtadh de réir Alt 11 d’Acht na dTeangacha Oifigiúla 2003. Is é bun-chuspóir an Achta ná a chinntiú go mbeadh fáil níos mó ar sheirbhísí poiblí trí Ghaeilge agus go mbeadh siad ar chaighdeán níos airde.
Tá aighneachtaí maidir le hullmhú na dréacht-scéime á lorg ag CICT anois ó aon pháirtithe leasmhara. Ba chóir nach rachadh na haighneachtaí sin thar 4,000 focal (c. 8 leathanach). B'fhearr dá gcuirfí aighneachtaí don CICT a sheoladh trí ríomhphost a email@example.com
Ina ionad sin is féidir iad a sheoladh leis an bpost chuig:
Coimisiúin um Iomaíocht agus Cosaint Tomhaltóirí

The CCPC published a public consultation on 20 February 2017 to gather views about the future of the Irish mortgage market.
The public consultation is a key input into a body of work being undertaken by the CCPC. This work was requested by the Government as part of the “Programme for a Partnership Government”. The CCPC is examining the market structure, legislation and regulation of the mortgage market in Ireland and will outline options on how Ireland can develop a better-functioning, more sustainable mortgage market.
Since formally commencing the study in December 2016, the CCPC has undertaken interviews and discussions with a wide range of stakeholders. Industry experts, existing mortgage providers, lenders in external markets and potential new entrants into the Irish market have all provided their insights and opinions. The CCPC has also met with consumer representatives, conducted focus groups with consumers, and consulted with researchers and academics.
Interested parties are invited to respond to the consultation in writing by no later than 5pm 20 March 2017.
On foot of the responses received, the CCPC will engage in further consultation and research before producing its final report in May 2017.
