Enhanced Fitness and Probity Regime - Clarification on Due Diligence Requirements for Existing Directors
The enhanced fitness and probity regime for the financial services industry in Ireland came into effect on 1 December 2011.

The Central Bank of Ireland (the "Central Bank") has now provided important clarification on this issue to Maples and Calder.
