- 01. What does the ODCE do?
Our primary role is to ensure that company law is being respected. This means that we offer company officers and others information about their duties and powers under Ireland’s Companies Acts. Where we are satisfied that legal obligations under the Acts have been or are being breached, we consider prosecuting the offenders before the Courts or taking other suitable enforcement action.
For further information please refer to the About the ODCE section of our site. You should also register your interest online for updates in ODCE activity.
- 02. Where can I find out about my duties as a company director or secretary?
The ODCE has published a series of information books and summary guides dealing with the principal duties and powers of Companies, Company Directors, Company Secretaries, Members & Shareholders, Auditors, Creditors, Liquidators, Receivers and Examiners. These Books have been prepared in order to make the complex provisions of company law more readily understandable to a non-professional audience.
- 03. Where can I get information on ODCE activity?
We will publish information from time to time on our activity or plans. You will therefore be able to get information by reading our Publications or Public Statements or by keeping in touch with developments via our website.
