Introduction

Purpose of this User Manual This User Manual provides instructional support and guidance to Authorised Firm Personnel who use the Online Reporting System (hereinafter the ONR or the System) to submit or view their Regulatory Returns. The manual focuses on access, navigation, use and management of the system. This manual does not cover the content of individual returns or the definitions of fields within returns. Users should continue to refer to the published Guidance for completing specific returns.

1.2

User Support All Business and System related Online Reporting queries and requests should be submitted to the Central Bank using the Instructions available in section 5 of this User Manual.

1.3

Familiarity with Manual As part of being authorised, it is required that all users are familiar with the content of this manual, as set out in the Minimum Competency Requirements.

4

Online Reporting System User Manual

1.4

Online Reporting System- New Features Self-Service Password Reset, Section 4.4. There is no need to contact the Central Bank; a user can reset their own password. It is a quicker and more convenient method of doing so. Submit Queries and My Requests, Section 5.1. This new function allows entities to submit questions to the Central Bank via an online query form. The form is easily accessible on the Home Page of the Online Reporting System. The response time for queries submitted through the ONR is quicker than for email. Returns Reminders and Acknowledgements, Section 6.1 allows entities to set reminders for the firm as well as for each individual return type. Delegation, Section 7.1. The Firm/ System Administrator may delegate a fund regulatory return filing to either a Fund administrator or a Funds legal advisor. The delegation options are limited to these two service provider types.

2.

The Online Reporting System

2.1

About the System The Online Reporting System is a web-based application through which authorised entities are required to submit their Regulatory Returns.

2.1.2 Minimum System Requirements The Online Reporting (ONR) System should work with any modern, standards-based browser. The Central Bank of Ireland does not require, or recommend, any particular browser as our web sites and public-facing applications support the current versions of all major browsers. Testing is concentrated on the most commonly used browsers. At this time, this specifically includes Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox – other browsers such as Safari, Opera and Edge should work, but are not extensively tested due to low usage on our sites. Only vendor supported versions of browsers are supported by the Bank – unsupported versions should not be used as they present a security risk. As of January 2016, the supported versions of common browsers we test against are:  Internet Explorer 11  Firefox current version  Chrome current version 5

2.1.3 Navigation Use the menu across the top of the system pages to navigate through the Online Reporting System. This menu is highlighted in red in Figure 2 below. The menu provides links back to each previous page the user navigated through to get to the current page. Fig 2

System Accounts

Fig 2.1

Online Reporting System User Manual

There are three different types of system account:   

Firm/System Administrator Business Administrator User

2.3.1 Firm/ System Administrator Accounts1 



 

The Firm/System Administrator will automatically have unconditional access to all returns applicable to the entity. This includes Fitness & Probity Returns (IQs) which may contain confidential and highly sensitive information. The Firm/System Administrator is responsible for adding, modifying or removing existing Business Administrator(s) and User(s) profile(s) to/from the ONR and adding or deleting the IQ return type to individual Business Administrator(s) and User(s) profile(s) as required, without contacting the Central Bank. Each entity shall have one Firm/System Administrator account. The Firm/System Administrator is responsible for setting up and managing Business Administrator accounts and User accounts for the Entity (i.e. notifying login details and resetting passwords, when necessary). They may also set the

Please note that some Institutions do not have Firm/ System Administrators. Where this occurs please refer to divisional specific guidance notes on Administrators.

profiles to provide the ability to view, create, submit and/or amend returns and delegate (For Funds), depending on the roles assigned. The Central Bank will notify the Firm/System Administrator directly of their login details (institution code, login name and password) after initial setup of the Entity on the ONR.2 If the Firm/System Administrator changes, the Institution must notify the Central Bank immediately via the ‘Submit a Request’ process.3 If the proposed new Administrator is not set up with an account on the ONR, this must be done before contacting the Central Bank.

2.3.2 Business Administrator Accounts 







Business Administrator accounts are primarily in place for larger financial institutions with multiple divisions, where a ‘Chinese Wall’4 structure is required to restrict transfer of sensitive information between divisions within the firm. The primary difference between Business Administrator and Firm/System Administrator accounts is that the Business Administrator(s) does not automatically have access to all returns. The Business Administrator will be assigned their ONR account profile and roles by the Firm/System Administrator. Where the Firm/System Administrator has given responsibility and access to do so, the Business Administrator account can create, edit or delete other Business Administrator accounts and other User accounts. The functions assigned may include set up and management of other accounts, notification of login details, resetting passwords, setting profiles to provide the ability to view, create, submit and/or amend returns. If someone is to act as proposer for Individual Questionnaires, they must be a Business Administrator and have Administrator access to the IQ Return type.

2.3.3 User Accounts    

The User will have the ability to view, edit and amend returns, as determined by the roles assigned to them. User accounts are administered by the Firm/System Administrator or Business Administrator. They may set up one or more User accounts for the firm. The User account cannot create or edit other User accounts. Please refer to the Access procedure for more information.

Fitness & Probity Returns

Before a regulated financial service provider can appoint a person to a PCF, the Central Bank must have approved the appointment in writing. All persons wishing to seek approval to perform a preapproval controlled function (“PCF”) must complete and submit an Individual Questionnaire to the Central Bank electronically through ONR. The Central Bank will no longer accept paper IQ submissions.

20

Online Reporting System User Manual

All firms currently utilising ONR will have the ONR Fitness & Probity returns such as the “IQ return type” automatically added to their profiles by the Central Bank. Regulated financial service providers will be provided with a System Administrator account, allowing them to log on to the online system. Individual accounts for PCF applicants (and/or PCF Proposers) can then be created by regulated financial service providers, enabling applicants to complete their IQs online. For full details on the Fitness & Probity process including guidance on how to complete an Individual Questionnaire (“IQ) application, please refer to the Fitness & Probity section of our website located here.

2.7.1 Points on using the System The return includes: i) an online IQ form, to be completed by the proposed holder of the PCF (including pre-formatted curriculum vitae sections within the IQ form itself); ii) ability to attach additional documentation to support an application where necessary; iii) option/ability to export core data once completed online which can later be imported by the applicant for a subsequent application; iv) an online declaration by the proposed holder of the PCF as to the accuracy and veracity of the information provided; v) an online declaration by an appropriate officer from the proposing regulated financial service provider confirming the checks of the individual were undertaken by the regulated financial service provider (e.g. appropriate due diligence regarding qualifications and experience, previous employer reference checks etc.), and confirming that the regulated financial service provider is satisfied that the proposed holder of the PCF is fit and proper.

The online IQ enables the applicant to submit a single application where applying for more than one PCF in the same regulated financial service provider (e.g. head of risk and head of compliance).

Where a person wishes to apply for several PCFs in different regulated financial service providers, however, s/he must submit an application for each PCF.

The individual is responsible for all information given to the regulated financial service provider and/or the Central Bank. Section 1 Section 1 is a preliminary section which determines the information required to be completed within the rest of the form. The applicant’s responses in Section 1 will enable or disable certain of the other 21

Online Reporting System User Manual

sections of the Individual Questionnaire. For example, if you answer ‘Yes’ to question 1.8, complete Section 9 which will be mandatory, and then change your answer to question 1.8 to ‘No’, the data you previously entered in Section 9 is erased and cannot be recovered. Section 2 In this section the applicant must provide their personal details, as well as select the proposed PCF role and principal sector in which they propose to operate. Section 3 This section requests details of the applicant’s professional and other relevant experience, educational qualifications, professional memberships and relevant training. The applicant must demonstrate that they have the necessary qualifications, experience, competence and capacity appropriate to the relevant PCF(s) applied for. Section 4 The Minimum Competency Code section must be completed if the applicant answered Yes to Question 1.1 and are a New Entrant, or are availing of Grandfathering arrangements. Section 5 The Applicant Reputation and Character section is mandatory for all applicants excluding those who are currently approved by the Central Bank of Ireland or another Financial Services Regulator within the EU/EEA to a similar position in the same sector for which you are now applying. Section 6 In the Applicant Current and Previous Regulatory Approvals section the applicant must provide details of all current and previous regulatory approvals held (within the last 10 years), including approvals by other Financial Services Regulators in other jurisdictions. Section 7 Applicants must complete the Applicant Shareholdings in Proposing Entity or Group Companies section if they answered Yes to Question 1.6. They must provide details of current or proposed shareholdings in the proposing entity or related entities, including voting rights. Section 8 The Applicant Shareholdings/Business Interests in Financial Entities and Other Firms section is mandatory if the applicant answered Yes to Question 1.7. The applicant must provide details of all current and previous business interests in financial and non-financial entities. Section 9 In this section the applicant must provide details of all current and previous positions in financial or non-financial entities which are not regulated and therefore are not included in Section 6 of the application. Section 10 All documentation in the Supporting Documentation section must be submitted in one of the following formats: 22

2.7.3 Text Box Fields The maximum number of characters permitted is either 100 or 1000. If you are providing information exceeding the 1000 character limit, please provide the information in a Word document and attach/upload to section 10.

2.7.4 Drop-down List Boxes Some fields require you to select an entry from a drop-down list box. If the question is relevant but a suitable entry is not available, please choose the entry ‘Other’.

2.7.5 Import/Export Function The import/export function has been provided to aid ease of use when completing IQs in the future. At any stage during the completion of the IQ, the applicant has the option to export all the inputted core data (Sections 2, 3,6,7,8 and 9) to a Read-Only Excel document and save it on their computer. At a later stage, if they need to complete another IQ and following the completion of Section 1 of the new IQ, the applicant may import this data into the new Questionnaire. This allows all the information from the previous IQ (Sections 2, 3,6,7,8 and 9) to be copied across to the new IQ.

Note- Only Sections 2, 3, 6, 7, 8 and 9 will be populated after importing as these sections do not contain declarations. The applicant will then be required to validate the completed sections by reviewing the imported data, and then selecting “Save Form”. If you are using the Import function, please insure you update your information in the new application i.e. include additional roles undertaken since the previous application, changes in employment, etc.

Upon completion of your Individual Questionnaire (IQ) you will have the option to Export to Excel as highlighted in the screenshot below. Click “Export to Excel” in order to save the information on an excel document on your computer. For more information please refer to the ‘How to’ videos on the Central Bank website. Fig 2.18

24

Online Reporting System User Manual

Please note – If you haven’t exported the information from a previous IQ and need to complete another one, you can log back into the Online Reporting System using your login details (Institution code, Login Name and Password). Once you have logged on you can click into the previously completed IQ and “Export to Excel”.

A dialog box will appear (see example screenshot below), press “Save” in order to save it on your computer.

25

Online Reporting System User Manual

You can then edit the file name and save it in the desired folder on your computer (see sample screenshot below).

Do not edit the exported excel spreadsheet. If you do the system won’t allow you to import the spreadsheet into an new IQ. Any edits can be made after the Import.

If you need to complete another IQ, you can import the information within the saved excel document. Once you start a new IQ you need to complete Section 1. You will then be given the option to “Import Previous” (see screenshot below).

26

Online Reporting System User Manual

A dialog box will appear (please see example screenshot below) allowing you to browse for the saved excel document that you have exported from a previous IQ you have completed.

27

Online Reporting System User Manual

The applicant will then be required to validate the completed sections by reviewing the imported data, and then selecting “Save Form”.

2.7.6 “Save Form” and “Save with Errors” At the top of every section, other than Section 1, you will see the “Save Form” and “Save with Errors” buttons. Section 1 only contains the “Save Form” button. “Save Form” allows you to save the completed section provided there are no errors. Once “Save Form” is clicked, any errors will be highlighted in red indicating fields you must complete. You may also use “Save Form” if the section is completely blank. “Save with Errors” is used where the applicant wishes to save incomplete sections or incorrect sections with errors. The errors will be highlighted in red the next time the applicant logs in to the section in question. The completed form cannot be validated and submitted to the Proposer until all the saved errors have been rectified.

2.7.7 Inactivity For security reasons, an application will close down if left idle for more than 20 minutes and any unsaved data will be lost. In order to avoid any loss of data please ensure application is saved at regular intervals. Please note, the “save with errors” function allows an applicant to save an 28

The System Administrator may delegate a fund regulatory return filing to either the funds administrator or the funds legal advisor. The delegation options are limited to these two service provider types. To delegate a return, the System Administrator should select Delegate Return Submission (Figure 7.1 refers)

76

Online Reporting System User Manual

Fig 7.2





The System Administrator will be prompted to insert a Start Date. This date must be a date before the first reporting date of that return is being made via the ONR System. For example, if the Sub-Fund Profile has a reporting date of 30 June 2013, the Start Date must be before 30 June 2013. The End Date should be left blank unless the System Administrator is aware of the date the relationship with the fund administrator or legal advisor is terminating. The Delegate To field will be pre-populated with the names of fund administrator and fund legal advisor. These names are taken from information held on the Central Bank’s records. If the name of an entity here is incorrect please contact the Central Bank immediately. Once the System Administrator selects either the fund administrator or fund legal advisor select the Save button and the return is now delegated to be filed by the entity the System Administrator has selected. (Figure 7.3 refers)
