what is interim remidation scheme?

he Interim Remediation Scheme for Fire Safety Defects in Eligible Apartments and Duplexes is an interim scheme introduced by the Irish government in 2023. It aims to provide funding on an urgent basis for fire safety remediation works in apartments and duplexes built between 1991-2013 that have fire safety defects.

who is it for?

This interim scheme was developed pending the establishment of a full statutory Apartment and Duplex Defects Remediation Scheme.

The statutory scheme will provide a comprehensive legal basis for remediating fire safety, structural safety and water ingress defects in apartments/duplexes constructed between 1991-2013. The interim scheme focuses only on urgently addressing fire safety defects through funded works to improve safety levels until the statutory scheme can fully remediate all defects.
