Under the new European financial market regulations (Directive 2014/65/EU and Regulation N 600/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on markets in financial instruments and their delegated implementing regulations), when submitting an order for a transaction in financial instruments for the account of a customer, investment firms must identify to the operators of trading venues the customer on whose account the order is initiated by means of individual identification codes. For the purposes of identification, the clients - legal entities are required to hold a legal entity identification code under ISO 17442, the so-called LEI Code. The acquisition of the LEI Code is the responsibility of the customer and the costs associated with the issuance are fully borne by it. 

In this context, we would like to inform you that any legal entity that uses the services of Central Cooperative Bank AD as an investment firm should provide information to the Bank about its LEI Code at the Bnk's branch where its accounts are serviced or at the following e-mail: trader@ccbank.bg. In the event that this information is not provided promptly, the Bank may refuse to accept and execute orders for transactions in financial instruments.

On 1 November 2007 the European Union effected the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID), which aims to harmonize regulations, procedures and requirements relating to transactions in financial instruments within the Community. The adoption of the Directive is driven by the increased activity of the increasing number of investors in the financial markets and by the supply to these markets of increasingly sophisticated and diverse financial instruments and services. This requires the establishment of a new regulatory framework so that to cover the wide range of services and activities offered to investors as well as to provide the necessary level of harmonization ensuring a high degree of investor protection and an opportunity for the investment firms to provide investment services throughout the European Community as a single market.

Bulgaria, in its capacity as a member state of the Union, introduces the requirements of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) in the local legal framework, through the adoption of the Markets in Financial Instruments Act and Ordinance 38 on the requirements for the operations of investment firms.
