The country information for Ireland has been updated on the UNECE website.

Ireland has updated its notifications under ADR 6.2.5 (recognised technical codes) by recognising three technical codes relating to fixed fire-fighting systems, and explosion and fire protection systems.

ADR 6.2.5, 6.8.2.7 and 6.8.3.7 provide that in order to reflect scientific and technical progress or where no standard is referenced in 6.2.2, 6.2.4, 6.8.2.6 or 6.8.3.6, or to deal with specific aspects not addressed in a standard referenced in 6.2.2, 6.2.4, 6.8.2.6 or 6.8.3.6, the competent authority of an ADR Contracting Party may recognise the use of a technical code providing the same level of safety.

The documents can be found on the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) website.
