Engineer Ireland Director General, Caroline Spillane, and Executive Board Member, Cormac Bradley, outlined Engineers Ireland support for the Bill which would place CIRI on a statutory footing. This, they argued, would promote a greater commitment to compliance with building regulations thereby promoting greater safety and quality for the consumer and the wider public.

CIRI is a register of competent builders, contractors, specialist sub-contractors and tradespersons, administered by the Construction Industry Federation. Engineers Ireland’s opening statement to the Committee is available here and more information on CIRI can be found on www.ciri.ie.

The transcript of the Committee is available on the Oireachtas website.
