Central Register of Regulated Information

Information about Central Register of Regulated Information

The Act No. 209/2007 Coll. which amended the Act No. 566/2001 Coll. on Securities and Investment Services has also amended the Stock Exchange Act No. 429/2002 Coll. (hereinafter referred as to "Stock Exchange Act") and besides others has also implemented provisions of Directive 2004/109/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of
15 December 2004 on the harmonisation of transparency requirements in relation to information about issuers whose securities are admitted to trading on a regulated market
 (so called Transparency Directive).

The directive in question requires that the access for investors to information about issuers be facilitated and that the integration of European capital markets be promoted. Due to this fact at the Community level a single electronic network is being created. This single electronic network will link different mechanisms appointed at national level for the storage of such information (so called officially appointed mechanisms for the storage of regulated information).

According to the above mentioned directive the institute of a Central Register of Regulated Information was introduced in an amendment to Stock Exchange Act in Article 48. Under the provisions of this Article paragraph (1) the National Bank of Slovakia shall maintain a Central Register of Regulated Information. Access to the Central Register of Regulated Information is available here (https://ceri.nbs.sk/).

Under the provisions of Article 47 paragraph (1) of Stock Exchange Act in conjunction with Article 47 paragraphs (7) and (8) of Stock Exchange Act and in accordance with Article 35 paragraph (1) of the Act No. 747/2004 Coll. on Supervision of the Financial Market and on amendments and supplements to certain laws the issuers whose securities are admitted to trading on a regulated market are required to send regulated and other optional information to the Central Register of Regulated Information, only electronically. Each issuer will be assigned a unique username and password which will be sent to them by post. Upon the delivery of the letter in question, the obligation of issuers of securities to submit regulated information by means of a letter ceases to exist.
