A Review of 2023 and a Look Ahead to 2024
Welcome to the Autumn/Winter edition of the Matheson Horizon Tracker
The Matheson Horizon Tracker describes key Irish and EU legislative and regulatory developments. In this Autumn 2023 edition we are selecting our best Insights published from across our practice areas during 2023 to inform our commentary. Building on these Insights we are also including a short summary of what is ahead for 2024. Our descriptive horizon scanning section is based on the Government legislative programme as published for Autumn 2023 but is informed by our up to date scanning of what has happened during the Oireachtas session. As usual we also keep an eye on domestic regulatory developments and legislative and regulatory updates from the EU. The combination of commentary from our best Insight pieces, together with an analysis of what has happened during the Autumn, and our horizon scanning into 2024 will best place our clients to plan for the short term, and we hope, be of use into the medium term. For the horizon scanning part of this publication our 'as of' date is 28 November 2023 which leaves us with around a week of legislative activity in the final days of this Oireachtas session.
As with recent editions, this edition is a web based production with links to commentary and analysis from Matheson experts in each practice area. From there please follow links to the reference guide for all relevant legislative and regulatory instruments in that subject. Related Knowledge events are available on our client facing platform, the Matheson Knowledge Hub (with the facility for automatically generated CPD certification), where you will find a range of specialist webinars in addition to webinars from our Knowledge Insights Series over the past year. In recent months, we have discussed COP28 in keeping with our intent to focus broadly on the global policy context ultimately feeding into legislative initiatives particularly at EU level.
If you have any questions about any of the content in our Matheson Horizon Tracker please contact any member of the PSL Faculty or your usual Matheson advisor.
