Ireland is in breach of the World Health Organisation’s International Health Regulations (IHR) on contagious disease control by failing to designate a ‘competent authority’ at its ports and airports, according to documents seen by RTÉ News.

The documents also show that Ireland has been non-compliant for approximately a decade, despite high-level discussions on the issue between the Health Service Executive, Department of Health and Department of Transport.
