Codes of Practice

Codes of Practice have been developed as a means to strengthen the management and protection of our valuable archaeological heritage while, at the same time, allowing the infrastructure providers in the State to progress with their programmes of work as efficiently as possible. These Codes have come about as a result of extensive consultation between the Department and the organisations involved.

These Codes represent the commitment of all those involved to archaeological conservation and sustainable development sensitive to our archaeological heritage. From time to time we will publish new or revised Codes of Practice.
