Description:

The Commission for Energy Regulation (CER) is Ireland’s independent energy regulator, established in 1999. Initially the CER’s primary role was as economic regulator of Ireland’s electricity and then, from 2002, natural gas sectors. In recent years the CER has also become a safety regulator, covering natural gas undertakings, gas (LPG and natural) installers and electrical contractors. Since 2010 the CER has been given an additional safety role regulating petroleum exploration and extraction activities.

This CER factsheet explains the CER’s roles in safety regulation, which is a growing focus for the organisation. The factsheet covers the CER’s safety roles in relation to:

1. Gas Safety;

2. Electrical Safety; and,

3. Petroleum Safety.
