Legal & Licensing

There are a number of very important legal considerations for tourism businesses. The information in this section provides a guide to the legislative regulations that tourist accommodation providers and other tourism businesses must adhere to in operating their business.   

All tourist accommodations providers must comply with the Tourism (Northern Ireland) Order 1992.  This stipulates that all tourist accommodation providers must receive certification from Tourism NI before they are allowed to begin operating.  In Operational Legislation you will find details of the regulations tourism businesses must adhere to, including fire safety regulations, liquor licensing laws, package holiday regulations, and food hygiene, etc.
