Project Overview

CEDRS - Project Overview

(Central Electronic Data Retrieval System)

This new reporting was officially announced early this year along with the law of 25 March 2020. The objective is to establish a central electronic data retrieval system related to IBAN accounts and safe-deposit boxes. A recent CSSF Circular (CSSF 20/747) was released end of July (and updated early September) where the technical requirements and format are described. Entities falling under the scope of this new law are mainly the banks.

Practically, this new reporting has uncommon characteristics which can be summarized by :

  • Releasing a new Secure Chanel in Luxembourg, using the latest secured transmission technologies
  • Daily reporting including week-ends (7/7days)
  • Gathering IBAN accounts and safe-deposit boxes owner(s) information
  • Tights delays for implementation
  • High size of reports (for important institutions)

Altought the fact that a clear deadline was not given, the lone date actually referenced is the 10th September 2020. At U IT we assume this date has to be considered as a first step given to illustrate the importance of this new report's transmission. The CSSF will probably communicate soon with more information on the subject.

U IT responded to this new requirement and is currently working on the development of a solution based on 2 independent applications with the following aspects :

  • 100% operated under your own infrastructure
  • Using the simplest and more direct transmission solution, no third party implied
  • By result of the previous points, propose the most secured method to ensure the confidentiality of the transmitted data but also keep a full hand on the processes
  • Reduced costs due to simplified complexity - small costs adpated for small entities

RGen CEDRS
Overview

RGen CEDRS - Overview

RGen CEDRS stands for "Report Generator (for the) Central Electronic Data Retrieval System".

RGen CEDRS is the first part of the solution proposed by U IT to respond to this new reporting obligation. Its main purpose is to generate a valid report from a source file which is extracted from our customers core systems.

At the date of early September 2020, the application is currently under development :

  • Consult the Project Diary page for the most up-to-date information
  • RGen detailed roadmap : RGen CEDRS Roadmap

Main characteristics will be the following :

  • Automated tool, suited to be included in a process chain (workflow)
  • Includes many options to adapt to different raw data extractions
  • Includes the PGP encryption function
  • Run on Windows system


Useful notice : As soon as U IT will have a first stable beta-version of the application, we'll freely deliver it to our customers to help them in their testings for the implementation of the process chains. U IT will also take into consideration any constructive feedback and may adapt the tool or add new functions or options in order to successfully achieve the goal to generate a valid report

U IT is strongly open to suggestions from its customers and we privilege mutual cooperation. For some of them U IT is considered as a dedicated IT development partner specialised in the Luxembourg legal reporting domain.

SAPI CEDRS
Overview

SAPI CEDRS - Overview

SAPI CEDRS stands for "Secured API (for the) Central Electronic Data Retrieval System".

SAPI CEDRS is the second part of the solution proposed by U IT to respond to this new reporting obligation. Its main purpose is to correctly communicate with the CSSF to allow the secured transmission of the report, to interpret the results and perform the necessary action in response.

At the date of early September 2020, the application is currently under development :

  • Consult the Project Diary page for the most up-to-date information
  • SAPI detailed roadmap : SAPI CEDRS Roadmap

Main characteristics will be the following :

  • Automated tool including API technology to communicate with CSSF
  • Can include in option the PGP encryption function
  • Includes many options (reactions) possible upon success or error
  • Run on Windows system


Useful notice : Unlike the other application (RGen CEDRS), SAPI CEDRS will be more complex to implement and configure. As the application will require a certain number of annex configurations or authorizations, providing with a beta-version of the application may be difficult and could be time consuming. U IT will focus its efforts to deliver a first version of the application accompagnied with a detailed installation procedure to allow our customers to perform their early communication tests with the CSSF. A good cooperation between U IT and our customer IT team will be welcomed.
