help understand local regulations

The Central Bank of Ireland is responsible for authorizing and supervising providers of regulated financial services in Ireland. One of the most significant roles the Bank plays is as an EU passporting system for banks and financial services companies to enable firms that are authorized in any EU or EEA state to trade freely in any other state with minimal additional authorization. Countries that are not in the EU do not have these privileges.
