OeKB as Notification Office in accordance with Sec. 12 Austrian Capital Markets Act, is to be notified of all securities or investments as early as possible. These notifications to the new-issue calendar pursuant to Sec. 13 Capital Markets Act 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. 13 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 pursuant to Sec. 3 Capital Markets Act.

Further offers of the same securities or investments do not have to be notified. In addition, the notification requirement does not apply to securities pursuant to Sec. 3 para. 1 no. 4 - 6, 10, 12 and 13.

The Capital Markets Act (KMG)

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

Description of the notification fields

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. Details on the technical specification of the OeKB XML interface and the corresponding XSD can be found in the interface description.

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.
