Commitment details

  • Ireland has included a commitment in an Open Government Partnership National Action Plan to beneficial ownership transparency
  • As a European Union member, Ireland was obliged to create a central, public register of beneficial ownership as part of the EU’s fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive. Following the judgement of the Court of Justice of the European Union on 22 November 2022, member states are no longer required to provide public access, and are instead required to, at a minimum, provide access to those that can demonstrate a legitimate interest.
