Regulatory disclosures

Issuers that are subject to our Disclosure and Transparency Rules, Listing Rules or Prospectus Rules must make announcements to investors in a range of circumstances.

These announcements must be made in line with minimum standards set out in the Transparency Directive. The standards relate to how quickly and securely the information was transmitted, and whether it was distributed to a sufficiently wide audience.

The National Storage Mechanism is our official way of storing regulated information, as required under the Transparency Directive.

Approved information distribution firms

Issuers may use a firm that has demonstrated – to us or the body approving it in another member state – that it can distribute information in accordance with the Transparency Directive. An issuer that uses an approved firm to distribute information on its behalf need not make an annual declaration to us about its compliance with the relevant provisions in the Transparency Directive.

If an issuer decides not to use an approved firm, it must maintain records of how each announcement it makes complies with the relevant provisions in the Transparency Directive and report on its compliance to us annually or whenever we require it to.

The following firms have been approved by the FCA and maintain an ongoing regulatory relationship with us:
