Interaction between the UCI Departments and the Investment Fund Managers – recipients of specific communications
Pursuant to Circular CSSF 19/721 – Dematerialisation of requests to the CSSF and to further improve the transmission of specific communications (such as surveys, data collection exercises, thematic requests) whilst ensuring the protection of confidential data, the CSSF informs the Investment Fund Managers (IFMs) that, as of today, outbound emails from the UCI Departments (Métier OPC) in this context will solely be sent to the email addresses of eDesk users defined as “Board Member” and/or “Conducting Officer” on the eDesk Portal.
For exchanges related to AML/CFT, the “Board Member” and/or “Conducting Officer” may be contacted in addition to the “AML/CFT responsible officer”. Please note that the role of “AML/CFT responsible officer” shall be reserved for the RR (responsable du respect des obligations professionnelles) and RC (responsable du contrôle du respect des obligations professionnelles), and their backups considering the eDesk rights attributed to these functions.
For other exchanges (i.e. directly between the CSSF and an IFM in relation to specific files, topics), the CSSF process remains unchanged and the responsible persons within the IFM will continue to be contacted directly.
In this context, the CSSF reminds Investment Fund Managers that they must keep the email addresses of eDesk users on the eDesk Portal up to date at all times.
