Some properties that come out of our grading schemes continue to display Tourism Northern Ireland branding (signage, certificates, window stickers, text reference and/or logos) or claim to have a Tourism Northern Ireland star grade when they are not legally entitled to do so.
Displaying Tourism Northern Ireland signage, certificates, window stickers, text referencing and/or logos when no longer participating in our grading schemes is an offence under The Tourism (NI) Order 1992 and is misleading to potential guests/visitors.
We regularly monitor the use of signage, certificates, window stickers, text referencing and/or logos and we investigate any matters concerning improper signage to ensure appropriate action is taken.
If you find any establishments that are not in our schemes but are displaying Tourism Northern Ireland branding in any form, we want to know about it. Contact our team in confidence via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
