OeKB as Notification Office in accordance with Sec. 23 Austrian Capital Markets Act 2019, is to be notified of all securities or investments as early as possible. These notifications to the new-issue calendar pursuant to Sec. 24 Capital Markets Act 2019 have to be made before they are offered in Austria for the first time. Public and non-public offers are subject to the notification obligation.

Your situation

You represent a bank, insurer, a company or an issuer, and are an offerer of securities or investments. You are therefore obliged, pursuant to Sec. 24 Capital Markets Act (KMG), to notify your planned issues to the new-issue calendar as early as possible.

Within the scope of the notification to the new-issue calendar, information on the prospectus must be sent to the Notification Office pursuant to the KMG at the OeKB or information on exemptions from the prospectus obligation.

Further offers of the same securities or investments do not have to be notified.

You can find the complete text of the Capital Markets Act in the legal information system of the Federal Chancellery (RIS).

Changes in the notification system on 1 December 2020

With the launch of the new ESMA notification portal pursuant to Article 25 of the Prospectus Regulation, the reporting system pursuant to Section 24 of the Austrian Capital Markets Act will be adapted to the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/979 on 1 December 2020 as follows:

  • Inclusion of relevant issue-related data for the classification of prospectuses under the Prospectus Regulation (only relevant for notifications of issues for which a prospectus has been approved by the Austrian Financial Market Authority; i.e. home member state Austria)
  • Extension by the reporting fields "final offer price" and "final amount of securities" according to Art 17 of the Prospectus Regulation
  • Extension by the reporting field "prospectus reference" with a prospectus identification for a clear assignment of all reported ISINs.

On this page we will keep you informed about the development of the implementation and are available for your questions at meldestelle@oekb.at. 
The Test Webservice Interface is available for the submission of XML test-files. The current version of the extended XSD and descriptions of the reporting fields can be found here:

Simultaneous notification of numerous issues via XML interface

If you have to notify a large number of issues, use of the OeKB XML interface may be of interest because it enables a fully automated and time-saving sending of notifications to the new-issue calendar. This minimises your efforts. The technical specification of the OeKB XML interface and the corresponding XSDs can be found at the following link:

XSDs and documentation of the OeKB XML interface

Further details can be found in the interface description and description of the XSD notification fields.

Description of the XSD notification fields

Tip: ISIN can also be applied for via the same interface. You therefore have just one single implementation cost.

Your advantages:

Convenient

You can comply with your notification obligation in a way that suits you.

Automated

You can issue fully automatic notifications via the OeKB XML interface and, in doing so, minimise your efforts.

Multi-tasking

You can apply for ISIN over the same XML interface and therefore only have to implement the system once.
