Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations.)
These Regulations amend the Employer’s Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Exemption Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1975 (S.R. 1975 No. 230) (“the 1975 Regulations”). The 1975 Regulations specify the employers who are exempted from the requirements of Part III of the Employer’s Liability (Defective Equipment and Compulsory Insurance) (Northern Ireland) Order 1972 (S.I. 1972/963 (N.I. 6)) (“the 1972 Order”) to insure and maintain insurance against liability for personal injury suffered by their employees and arising out of and in the course of their employment. The exemptions specified in the 1975 Regulations are additional to those contained in Article 7 of the 1972 Order.
These Regulations add to the exemptions specified in the 1975 Regulations so as to exempt any Education and Library Board established under Article 3 of the Education and Libraries (Northern Ireland) Order 1986 (S.I. 1986/594 (N.I. 3)).
