Health and Safety Authority has commenced a public consultation process on amending the Construction Regulations.

The purpose of these Regulations is to make specific provisions in relation to the expiry of SafePass cards and requirements for renewals. The Regulations amend the references to the Safety Awareness Scheme following the dissolution of FÁS and the establishment of SOLAS as the agency of the State responsible for the management of that scheme. The Regulations also change any other references to FÁS to SOLAS and similarly change references to FETAC to QQI following the establishment of the Quality and Qualifications Ireland.
