The Department for the Economy has, on 13 December 2016, made a Statutory Rule entitled “The Mines Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2016” (S.R. 2016 No. 427).
The Regulations will come into operation on 01 February 2017 and will consolidate and modernise the law on health and safety in mines in Northern Ireland. The Regulations retain necessary protection for mineworkers and others and clearly place the duty to ensure health and safety on the mine operator. They also remove outdated and redundant legislation, prescription and duplication.
The Regulations will be included in the list of subordinate legislation on the HSENI website and in due course there will also be a copy of the Regulations on the website http://www.legislation.gov.uk/nisr
