CSDR Reporting Obligation

Securities Markets Regulation

Date: 15 July 2019

Pursuant to Article 9(1) of the Central Securities Depositories Regulation (‘CSDR’ – Regulation No. 909/2014) settlement internalisers shall report to their competent authority on a quarterly basis the aggregated volume and value of all securities transactions that they settle outside securities settlement systems.  Further information can be obtained on ESMA’s website.  This includes guidelines, technical guidance and related XML files as well as XSD for ISO20022.

The Central Bank has contacted firms likely to have a reporting obligation.  If you think that your firm has an obligation to report settlement internalisation activity to the Central Bank of Ireland, and your firm has not been contacted, please contact settlementinternaliser@centralbank.ie

The first reports were due within 10 working days of 30 June 2019 (i.e. by 12 July 2019) and covered the period from April to June 2019.

Reports must be submitted to the Central Bank via the secure Online Reporting System
