Dear customers, we would like to inform you that we have just published a corrected version of ISB interface for follow-up records v7.2 on our company’s website, in the section Description of communication interfaces My Depositary.

Last published interface contains incorrect XSD file for which we apologize. The version published today already contains the correct XSD as well as the modified descriptions for services S01 to S09. The implementation schedule remains unchanged.

We apologize for any complications in advance and thank you for your understanding.

CDCP participants are advised that with effect from 31 January 2022 (inclusive), a new version of the ISB communication interface (for follow-up records) in version 7.2 will be deployed to the operating environment. The announced change only applies to those interface services implemented on the basis of the current Directive (EU) 2017/828 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 May 2017 amending Directive 2007/36/EC (SRD II), which aims to ensure the long-term engagement of all shareholders rights in companies whose shares are admitted to trading on a European regulated market. These are services S01 to S09, the structure of which is mandatorily defined by the currently valid ISO standard.

The services and their structures specified in the valid interface 7.1 do not match to the structures specified in the ISO standard. For this reason it was necessary to make an extraordinary release to ensure compliance. The implementation is mandatory only for participants that communicate via the ISB interface and therefore do not use the SWIFT protocol (the ISO standard is mandatory here as well).

A new version of the interface with an updated description of the communication structure can be found on our company’s website in the section: Description of communication interfaces My depository.
