No. 60 of 2007, European Communities (Markets in Financial Instruments) Regulations 2007”.

This “Breach, Error and Incident Reporting Form for MiFID Firms” is a return on the Bank’s Online Reporting System which was developed to facilitate breach, error and incident reporting by MiFID firms. The Form consists of two parts: Part 1 - the Online Reporting System on which firms are required to provide information on the category of the issue being reported; and Part 2 is a word document in which firms are required to provide more detailed information on the issue reported in Part 1 by answering specific questions.

The Form is now available on the Central Bank website
