The Irish Safes Ratings Group (ISRG) is a voluntary ad hoc group that was established in 2016 at the request of ESSA the European Security Systems Association. The group's task is solely to make and periodically update recommended insurance ratings related to the overnight cash cover for certified safes, strong rooms and secure cabinets for the Republic Of Ireland , conforming to European standards EN14450, EN1143-1, EN1143-2. The National Standards Authority Of Ireland and The Private Security Authority sat in an observer capacity at the group's establishment. Currently the group only convenes when a change to related European standards or a development affecting Safe or Strongroom risk factors occurs. Senior risk managers from all insurance providers are welcome to attend meetings.
Due to the continued sale of second hand safes containing asbestos in Ireland the HSA have published an Enforcement notice “Asbestos Risks In Safes And Fire-Resistant Cabinets” on the 21st of October 2019.
