Race Relations Order (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2009 come into force

Implementation date: 11 January 2010

The Regulations amend the definition of indirect discrimination on the grounds of race, ethnic or national origin in the Race Relations (Northern Ireland) Order 1997 (SI 1997/869). The amendment makes clear that indirect discrimination covers both persons who are put at a disadvantage by a discriminatory provision, criterion or practice, and those who would be put at such a disadvantage. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
