Communication regarding UCI Approval through eDesk

Press release 19/45

As previously announced in our communiqué on 5 September 2019, the CSSF confirms that applications for new UCI approval (UCITS, UCI Part II, SIF and SICAR not yet registered on the official list) will have to be submitted as from 1 October 2019 via its new eDesk portal.

However, in order to allow users to become familiar with this new portal, the CSSF has decided to put in place a transition period ending on 31 October 2019 during which requests for UCI approval may be submitted:

  • via email or secured e-file channels using the current dedicated Excel form, or
  • via the eDesk/UCI approval dedicated application.

Please note that, as from 1 November 2019, the only possible channel will be eDesk. Therefore we encourage you to submit your next applications via the eDesk portal in order to get familiar with the new communication channel.

All information related to the creation of user account(s) is detailed in the lower section of the eDesk portal homepage (https://www.cssf.lu/edesk).
