Events Framework Requirements Updated From Today

Calling all Event Planners! The Updated Events Framework is Active from Today, 1 November 2021

We are all learning how to live with COVID-19 for the foreseeable future. This means that while we have been able to return to doing some things as normal there are behaviours and some restrictions that we will need to maintain over the medium to long term. In particular our events sector, where people are gathering in large numbers continues to be a high-risk activity and must be carefully planned.

As of today, 1 November 2021, the COVID-19 Safe Events and Activities Framwork has been updated.

The purpose of the Events Framework is to help event organisers to identify and manage the risk of COVID-19 for a range of event and activity types in a diverse range of settings. It sets out the process for working with government to deliver a COVID-19 safe event under the current Public Health Directions.

Events are assessed under the Events Framework according to their size, type, complexity and associated risk factors. Public Health oversight is applied to events according to a three-tiered system.
