The Mines Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2016

Made

Coming into operation

1st February 2017

The Department for the Economy and the Department of Justice acting jointly as the Department concerned(1) make the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by Articles 2(5), 4(4) and (6), 17(1) to (6) and (8), 20(2), 40(2) and (4), 43(3), 45, 54(1) and 55(2) of, and paragraphs 1(1), 1(2), 1(3) and 1(4), 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12(1), 12(3), 13, 14(1), 15, 17, 18, 19, and 20 of Schedule 3 to, the Health and Safety at Work (Northern Ireland) Order 1978(2)(“the 1978 Order”).

The Regulations, apart from the partial revocation referred to in the next paragraph, give effect without modifications to proposals submitted by the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland under Article 13(1A)(3) of the 1978 Order after consultations had been carried out in accordance with Article 46(3)(4) of the 1978 Order.

It appears to the Department concerned that the partial revocation of the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008(5) is expedient as set out in Article 54(1) of the 1978 Order. It also appears to the Departments not to be appropriate to consult bodies in respect of this partial revocation in accordance with Article 54(5) of the 1978 Order.
