Safe Ratings In The Republic of Ireland

The Irish Safes Ratings Group (I.S.R.G.) was established to make and periodically update, recommended insurance ratings related to the overnight cash cover for certified safes, strong rooms and secure cabinets, conforming to European standards, for the Republic Of Ireland. The National Standards Authority of Ireland and The Private Security Authority sit in an observer capacity on the group.

Having been sourced directly from the Republic of Ireland's insurance industry the I.S.R.G. rates are now the official rates recognised by The European Security Systems Association.

If you encounter rates that differ from the indicative rates shown on the I.S.R.G. web site or the E.S.S.A. web site which can be found here: http://www.ecb-s.com, it is important to understand that the rates you see are completely fictitious, either by intention or through ignorance. Furthermore, seeing such rates should be a good indication of the reliability of the information you may obtain from a source that quotes completely unsubstantiated figures for a factor as critical as overnight insurance cover.

Irish Safes Ratings

I.S.R.G. safe ratings take into account the installation of an Intruder Alarm which is a common practice for setting these recommendations across Europe. This results in two sets of recommendations one with and one without a monitored intruder alarm installed.

All recommended ratings are subject to risk assessment and the appropriate security controls being in place.
