The Welsh Language Commissioner (Welsh: Comisiynydd y Gymraeg) is a Welsh Government officer, overseeing an independent advisory body of the same name. The position was created following the passing of the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011, effective on 1 April 2012, with the aim of promoting and facilitating the use of the Welsh language. This entails raising awareness of the official status of the Welsh language in Wales and by imposing standards on organisations. This, in turn, will lead to the establishment of rights for Welsh speakers. According to the Commissioner's website, there are two principles that underpin the work of the Commissioner, namely: Welsh should not be treated less favourably than the English language in Wales People should be able to live their lives in Wales through the medium of Welsh if they so wish.The Commissioner's work is politically independent, and the position of a commissioner lasts seven years.
