On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the creation of the Central Bank on 1 February 1943, A Chronology of Main Developments in the Central Bank of Ireland 1943-2013 was produced, outlining key developments in the history of the Central Bank. The Central Bank Reform Act 2010 created the new single unitary body, the Central Bank of Ireland, which replaced the previous related entities, the Central Bank and the Financial Services Authority of Ireland and the Financial Regulator. The Act commenced on 1 October 2010. The Central Bank aims to manage its information, data and other resources effectively and efficiently. Data, tools and capabilities need to be available, aligned and optimised to generate effective business insight and to deliver on our mandate. In this regard, a comprehensive data and information management strategy will be developed and implemented. The Central Bank’s relocation to a new head office at North Wall Quay has facilitated improved ways of working, collaboration and efficiency.
