Submission of AML/CFT Market entry form via eDesk Portal as from 15 February 2021
On 8 February 2021, the CSSF issued a communication on the digitalisation of the AML/CFT Market Entry Form (the “Form”), which was previously to be submitted pursuant to a dedicated Excel form.
As from 15 February 2021, the Form for investment funds (regulated or authorised) and investment fund managers must be filled out and submitted through the CSSF’s eDesk Portal:
- for an investment fund, upon authorisation and adding sub-funds;
- for an investment fund manager, upon authorisation or registration, license extension and modification of qualified shareholding.
Who shall submit the form?
The AML/CFT Market Entry Form must in principle be initiated and submitted by:
- the compliance officer in charge of the control of compliance with the professional obligations (“responsable du contrôle du respect des obligations professionnelles” (“RC”)) of the investment fund or respectively the investment fund manager; or
- the person responsible for compliance with the professional obligations (“responsable du respect des obligations professionnelles” (“RR”)) of the investment fund or respectively the investment fund manager.
While the RC or RR remains responsible for the adequate completion of the form, the completion of the form can also be assigned within eDesk Portal to another employee of the entity or third party.
All information related to the creation of user account(s) is detailed in the eDesk Portal homepage.
