FAQs for announcement process
Who can register?
An issuer or an organisation authorised by the issuer can register to submit announcements.
(Note: in respect of investment funds, only the appointed listing sponsor may submit announcements, except in circumstances where an announcement is to fulfil an EU regulatory requirement.)
Can I register a group email address?
Yes. Please include a primary contact name in your organisation when you register. For group emails, the ISE advises users to register an email address that at least two people in your organisation have access to.
I have registered but I cannot logon, how do I activate my registered user account?
Once you have registered as a user, you will receive an email to your registered user email address. Follow the link provided in this email to activate your account. In some cases, your email account may be configured to block certain emails or mark them as spam.
If the activation email is in your spam folder, please ensure that you mark as Not Spam in order to ensure that any further emails from ISEdirect are received to your inbox.
For more information on your email configuration, you may need to contact your IT Service Provider or IT department.
Should I choose file or file and publish?
By clicking on ''file only'' the notice or document is filed with the ISE but not published or disseminated to the market i.e. it does not meet any requirements in relation to the publication of regulated information. By clicking on "File and Publish document" or "File and Publish PDF document", the ISE will disseminate the announcement through RNS and thereby publish the information to the market.
Under what circumstances should debt issuers file documents through this platform?
For debt issuers the filing function on ISEdirect is designed to accommodate issuers who are required to file particular documents with the ISE, typically a requirement described within transaction documentation. Filings of other documentation, including Final Terms, Pricing Supplements, Financial Information and documents to be incorporated by reference should continue to be filed at email@example.com and at the Central Bank of Ireland where necessary.
Where should I send financial statements for investment funds?
All financial statements should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition any financial statement required to be published under the Transparency Directive should be published through ISEdirect and submitted to the CBI.
Where should I send financial statements for equity issuers?
All financial statements should be submitted to email@example.com. In addition any financial statement required to be published under the Transparency Directive should be published through ISEdirect and submitted to the CBI.
FAQs for OAM and Transparency Directive
What is the OAM and Transparency Directive?
Under the Transparency Directive regulated information must be filed by issuers admitted to trading on a regulated market in the EU with the officially appointed mechanism (‘OAM’) in their Home Member State. The Irish Stock Exchange is the OAM in Ireland and receives and stores OAM filings made by Irish entities. Further information on the Transparency Directive is available from the Central Bank website or email the Central Bank.
Why have the reporting obligations under the Transparency Directive changed?
The European legislation has changed to facilitate the European Securities and Markets Authority's development of a single European portal for the access to regulated information under the Transparency Directive.
What obligations have changed under the Transparency Directive?
From 1 January 2017, an Irish issuer filing regulated information under the Transparency Directive with the ISE using ISEdirect will be required to:
1. Indicate that the information is an OAM filing
2. Indicate that the issuer’s Home Member State is Ireland (if an issuer's Home Member State is not Ireland they cannot submit an OAM filing on ISEdirect)
3. Select a categorisation of regulated information
4. Provide the issuer's Legal Entity Identifier (‘LEI’).
Do I need to make an OAM filing on ISEdirect?
The obligation to file regulated information with the OAM in Ireland on ISEdirect applies to:
(a) Irish issuers of equity securities
(b) Irish issuers of debt securities
(c) Irish closed-ended investment funds which are admitted to trading on a regulated market in any EU country, which includes the ISE's Main Securities Market
OAM filings on ISEdirect are not relevant to: Issuers and funds domiciled outside Ireland Irish open-ended funds on the Main Securities Market Irish issuers with securities traded on the Global Exchange Market or the Enterprise Securities Market.
How do I check if I have an LEI?
You can check if you have an LEI with the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF).
How do I obtain an LEI?
You can apply for an LEI through this website. Our LEI services are quick and secure and available to global issuers regardless of where they are listed. Alternative Local Operating Units (LOUs) are listed on GLEIF website.

All charges are subject to VAT.
“File only” announcements will not be published or disseminated to the market.
How is VAT charged, and what VAT number should be included?
VAT is applied at the listed issuer level and not at the level of the entity submitting the announcement. So for example, and in the case of securitisations, it is the VAT number (if any) of the issuing vehicle that is required.
VAT charges depend on the country of incorporation of the listed vehicle or issuer:
• all Irish incorporated listed vehicles are subject to VAT
• EU incorporated listed issuers are exempt from VAT if the VAT number is included in the online submission
• non-EU are exempt from VAT
