In this contribution the implementation of the language policy is analysed on the basis of language rights complaints in the printed media and those addressed to PanSALB for the period 1 January to 31 December 2002. The article describes firstly the goals, competences and relevant focus areas of PanSALB. It also describes the possible reasons why language rights complaints can occur in the implementation of the language policy. The methodology followed in analysing the language rights complaints is expounded. The data on language rights complaints are divided into two categories: on the one hand the printed media and on the other to PanSALB. Both these categories, the printed media and those addressed to PanSALB, are devided furthermore into two categories; namely incidents, and complainants of language rights. After discussing the consequences/outcomes of this, certain deductions are drawn and suggestions made.
