The information is in the FIDE Handbook. The two relevant regulations are:
(i) All arbiters of a FIDE rated tournament shall be licensed otherwise the tournament shall not be rated. (Ref 1, para 0.3).
(ii) The Chief Arbiter of a title tournament shall be an International Arbiter (IA) or FIDE Arbiter (FA). He may appoint a temporary deputy. An IA or FA must always be in the playing venue. (Ref 2, para 1.16).

There used to be a page on the ECF website which summarised everything for ECF graded and FIDE rated competitions, but I no longer seem to be able to find it.
"Licensed arbiter" - what is that?
I think I have been through this before, and I found out that to be a FIDE licensed arbiter, I needed to be registered as a "national arbiter" with Ireland, which I promptly arranged. However, I would like to confirm my understanding.
