The Management of Health and Safety at Work: Approved Code of Practice

Date published: 24 April 2017

HSENI has taken the decision to develop a Northern Ireland Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) to the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (NI) 2000 (‘The 2000 Regulations’).

New Regulations

After consideration of responses to an earlier consultation, and with the approval of the former Minister for the Economy, HSENI has taken the decision to develop a Northern Ireland Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) to the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (NI) 2000 (‘The 2000 Regulations’).

The process of developing this document will take some time to complete and we will consult stakeholders about the ACoP’s content in the normal way.

In the interim period, HSENI would emphasise that the requirement for duty holders to comply with the 2000 Regulations is not affected by this decision, and that they can still refer to the former GB ACoP as a guide to how to meet the requirements of the Regulations.
