Introduction to Regulated Markets 

The Central Bank of Ireland is responsible for the regulation and supervision of Regulated Markets and Market Operators authorised in Ireland.

A regulated market is an authorised regulated market for the purposes of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID).

In Ireland, the regulated market is the Main Securities Market of the Irish Stock Exchange (ISE).

The Irish Stock Exchange complies with the requirements of various European Directives, including the Prospectus Directive, Transparency Directive, Market Abuse Directive and MiFID, in relation to securities listed and admitted to trading on the Main Securities Market of the ISE. 

These securities include equities, corporate bonds, government bonds, investment funds, exchange traded funds and specialist securities.
