Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service is required by The
Environment and Safety Information (Northern Ireland) Order 1993
(view The Order) to maintain a public register of Notices. The
Order requires specified authorities to establish a public
register of relevant Notices served concerning health, safety,
environmental protection and related issues. As an enforcing
authority of fire safety legislation, NIFRS will maintain a public
register of Notices served. These Notices are:
Relevant Notices are legal documents placing either restrictions
or requirements on the person on whom the Notice has been issued.
NIFRS will maintain the register, which will contain information
relating to Notices served. Each entry on the register will state
sufficient particulars to convey the substance of the notice to
which it relates.
Notices will be held in the register for a period of not less
than 3 years, after which the relevant notices will be subject to
the NIFRS publication scheme and may be available upon request.
Entries to the Register entry shall be made within 14 days of
the expiry of the right of appeal, or the disposal of an appeal
against the Notice at County Court. Where a Notice is cancelled
on appeal at County Court, no entry shall be made.
When NIFRS is satisfied that a relevant Notice has been complied
with, an entry shall be made in the Register to show this. If a Notice
is withdrawn or amended by NIFRS, the entry shall be deleted or amended.
These alterations of the Register shall be made within 7 days.
If you think that the entry for this Notice on the Register will
disclose commercially sensitive information, you should give written
notification to NIFRS within 14 days of the date of service. NIFRS
will then draft an entry which, in its opinion, will not reveal the
commercially sensitive information and serve this on you.
If you are not satisfied with this draft entry you may, within
14 days from the date of it being served on you, write to NIFRS
stating your intention to appeal according to Schedule 2 of The
Environment and Safety Information (NI) Order 1993.
The person hearing the appeal will either decide that the entry
should be made as drafted or, if it is considered that it does not
afford reasonable protection to the commercially sensitive information,
an amended entry will be made in such terms as may be specified.
