The CSSF’s new electronic filing platform ”electronic Reporting of Information concerning Issuers of Securities” (eRIIS) is live since 4 March 2022 and can be accessed at this link. eRIIS provides issuers and other persons subject to the Luxembourg law of 11 January 2008 on transparency requirements for issuers, as amended (the "Transparency Law") and Regulation (EU) 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on market abuse, as amended (the "Market Abuse Regulation") with a regulatory filing system and a secure channel of communication with the CSSF.
The two main CSSF Circulars 08/337 and 08/349 relating to the Transparency Law have been updated by CSSF Circulars 22/799 and 22/800, respectively, and now include details on the new filing process through the eRIIS platform.
Types of filings
eRIIS supports the filing of all ongoing and periodic information to be published by issuers pursuant to the Transparency Law and major holdings notifications pursuant to the Transparency Law. It also supports the filing of the various notifications/disclosures required in accordance with the Market Abuse Regulation.
A user account is required to access eRIIS and each user account must be linked to a reporting entity in order to perform filings on behalf of such a reporting entity. User accounts can be linked to more than one reporting entity.
A LuxTrust certificate is required to access the eRIIS platform and to get an eRIIS user account. As a consequence, persons who do not already possess a LuxTrust certificate should order one as soon as possible.
The CSSF encourages that concerned entities switch to filing through eRIIS as quickly as possible. However, in order to give the relevant persons sufficient time to set themselves up to use eRIIS, filings pursuant to the Transparency Law and Market Abuse Regulation continue to be made via email until 30 May 2022.
The CSSF has provided detailed guidance on the eRIIS platform in the form of user guides and frequently asked questions, which are available on the dedicated page of the CSSF website, which can be accessed by clicking here.
We at BSP remain available to guide you through the process of using the eRIIS platform including the obtaining of a user account and/or LuxTrust certificate.
