December 2020 news letter

The team Simplifi wish all our clients a very happy Christmas and everything of the best in 2021.

We are pleased to announce the introduction of a new country section, covering health, safety and environmental legislation, for the Republic of Ireland. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you require more information.

In our last newsletter of 2020, we report on new legislation covering conservation and protection to the environment, health and plants. We also cover amendments to legislation on dangerous substances, energy, environmental protection and waste. We have one new piece of Republic of Ireland (RoI) legislation. We provide progress reports on five pieces of legislation currently in Parliament. The HSE has published guidance on preparation for the end of The UK Transition Period, 1st January. We note a report by the Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) on a fatality in a confined space. There are two prosecutions of note.
