eRIIS (electronic Reporting of Information concerning Issuers of Securities) is the web application allowing entities subject to the Transparency Law and the Market Abuse Regulation to fulfil a wide range of filing obligations with the CSSF.

It covers the major legal filing requirements applicable to the issuers of securities as well as holders of securities and serves as a main communication channel between these persons or entities and the CSSF.

eRIIS in a nutshell

eRIIS is designed both as a regulatory filing system and a secure channel of communication with the CSSF. eRIIS will thus not only ensure a state-of-the-art protection of data exchanges with your competent authority, but will also allow you to follow-up on regulatory filings, notably by consulting various dashboards and tracking the status of individual filings. In addition, eRIIS offers advanced functionalities for the filing and processing of annual financial reports drawn up under the new ESEF format. eRIIS will furthermore allow you to adequately manage your data while at the same time offering the possibility of delegating administrative tasks to third parties by defining various levels of access rights for different users.

Access and rights

Access to eRIIS involves two different concepts:

  • User account: In order to access eRIIS a user account is required.
  • Reporting Entities: All filings are done on behalf of Reporting Entities which are created separately and can be legal or physical persons. A user account must necessarily be assigned to one or more Reporting Entities in order to be able to carry out filings on behalf of these Reporting Entities.

Several user accounts may be assigned to one single Reporting Entity and one user account may be assigned to different Reporting Entities. In order to properly manage the Reporting Entities, various levels of access rights granted to these user accounts may be defined. Please refer to the relevant user guides.

In principle before being able to file information, users need to create a new Reporting Entity in eRIIS, with the exception of issuers subject to the Transparency Law, for which a Reporting Entity will exist in eRIIS as from the moment they fall within the scope of the Transparency Law.  As a consequence, users shall refrain to create such a Reporting Entity themselves in eRIIS. Please also be aware that the assignment of the first and main user account, conferring the so-called Super User rights, to a Reporting Entity will require to be validated by the CSSF.

Please refer to the User Guide “Access and Authentication” for further details.

They will nonetheless be required to file again the same regulated information via eRIIS as soon as the issue is resolved.
