Governance framework of NMBI

This part of the What We Do section of the website provides details of our governance structure, our Board members and committees, as well as certain policy documents.

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) was established by the Nurses Act 1950 and continues under the provisions of the Nurses and Midwives Act 2011. In addition, NMBI must meet the legislative requirements as set out in the Ombudsman Act 2012, Freedom of Information Acts, the Official Languages Act 2003, Ethics in Public Office Acts and Standards in Public Office Act 2001. NMBI must carry out its functions within the context of these frameworks.

In addition, the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies sets out principles of corporate governance which State bodies are required to adopt. The National Public Procurement Policy Framework  (PDF, 0.198 MB) and the Public Procurement Guidelines for Goods and Services set out steps to be followed by State bodies in conducting an appropriate competitive process under EU and national rules.
