Welcome to, the website of the Office for Internet Safety

The Office for Internet Safety is an Executive Office of the Department of Justice and Equality.

The Office for Internet Safety was established by the Government to take a lead responsibility for internet safety in Ireland, particularly as it relates to children. The Office for Internet Safety aims to build linkages and cohesion between all Departments and agencies to ensure that the State provides the best possible protection for the community and promotes internet safety, particularly in relation to combating child pornography.

The Office for Internet Safety will build on and oversee the current self-regulatory framework which is in place under the Internet Service Providers Association of Ireland (ISPAI) .
