Submission of Insider List

Article 18 of the MAR requires issuers or any person acting on their behalf or on their account, to draw up a list of all persons having access to inside information, working for them under a contract of employment or otherwise. Insider lists must be made available to the Central Bank as soon as possible upon request. 

The submission of the above information to the Central Bank must be made using the Central Bank Portal which is a secure electronic submission system for the purpose of receiving confidential supervisory information and meets the requisite characteristics for receiving the information required to be submitted under MAR.

View general guidance for the Central Bank Portal.

Access to the Portal

Existing Portal user

If your firm has existing access to the Portal, you can either:

  1. Submit a ‘Request Change’ to Add a Return

    This will create a Request to add the Return Type to your Portal account.

  2. Request access to the MAR Return from your Portal Administrator.

If you are the Portal Administrator you can grant yourself permissions via the Portal Administrator -Manage Users menu on the Portal.

New to Portal

If your firm is new to the Central Bank Portal, new Portal Users  must Register. The designated Portal Administrator for the firm should also register and obtain a Person Code.

Once you have registered for the Portal, you will need to provide the following information to [email protected] :

  1. The full name of the firm
  2. Name of the designated Portal Administrator for the firm
  3. Person Code of the designated Portal Administrator
  4. Contact Details of the Portal Administrator (e-mail and telephone number)

You will then be provided with a C-Code for the firm and your Portal access will be in place.
