Governance & Compliance

Corporate Governance relates to the systems and processes within a company and influences how an organisation or business is structured, directed, and controlled. Compliance refers to the Company’s duty to adhere to Irish laws, codes, and regulations. This includes statutory obligations under the Companies Act 2014 and as well as many other relevant Governance and Compliance laws in Ireland.
