New reporting module for UCI administrators in accordance with Circular CSSF 22/811 on the authorisation and organisation of entities acting as UCI administrator now available on eDesk

Press release 23/12, published on 30 June 2023, updated on 10 July 2023

On 16 May 2022, the CSSF published Circular CSSF 22/811 (UCIA Circular). This UCIA Circular introduced new annual reporting for UCI administrators (UCIAs) to further strengthen the CSSF’s risk-based supervision.

In accordance with point 104 of the UCIA Circular, a UCIA must file information regarding its business activities and resources as detailed in Annex B of the UCIA Circular, at the latest five months after its financial year-end, starting from 30 June 2023. For example, a UCIA with a financial year ending on 30 June 2023 should first report the requested information no later than 30 November 2023. A UCIA with a financial year ending on 31 December 2023 should provide the CSSF with the UCIA reporting no later than 31 May 2024.

The UCIA annual reporting, as referred to in point 7 and detailed in Annex B of the UCIA Circular, can be submitted since 30 June 2023 to the CSSF via the following channels:

  1. On the CSSF eDesk platform, in the section “UCI Administrator Reporting Tool”. The eDesk homepage can also be accessed via the CSSF website. A user guide on eDesk authentication and user account management can also be found on the eDesk homepage.
  2. Via a solution based on the submission of a structured file through S3 (“simple storage service”) protocol. This solution allows for an automation by UCIAs and, if needed, a testing of the reporting file submission before going into production.

A dedicated user guide is also available, explaining the procedures for completing, validating and submitting the different report types.

The CSSF reminds the market that the UCIA reporting applies only to entities performing UCI administration function(s) and which are in scope of the UCIA Circular.
