The Incoming Platform is a centralised Internet-based platform, which permits the electronic transmission of documents to a single location. This page contains background information about the Incoming Platform, submissions within the SSM regime, details about the Single Points of Contact as well as further useful links.
The Incoming Platform allows the submission time as well as the operating expense for all concerned to be kept to a minimum. Certain submissions in accordance with the Incoming Platform Regulation are required to be submitted via the Incoming Platform. Submissions via the Incoming Platform do not however replace electronic reporting to the Oesterreichische Nationalbank.
The Incoming Platform can also be used for notifications and submissions by investment firms and investment services providers. This ensures that the submitted data remains in the competent confidentiality area of the Financial Market Authority; there is no interface to other institutions or authorities.
Since 4 November 2014, the European Central Bank has been the competent authority for the supervision of of significant credit institutions. The Financial Market Authority, however, remains the competent authority for the supervision of less significant credit institutions (further information about the SSM).
Submissions by significant credit institutions are generally to be made to the JST Coordinator (contact person at the European Central Bank). The submission should also be transmitted to the JST Sub-Coordinator (contact person at the Financial Market Authority) for information purposes (see also: Approach to existing supervisory processes). Exceptions to this rule are submissions in accordance with Article 73 SSM-FR (granting of a licence), Article 85 SSM-FR (qualifying holding procedure), Article 93 SSM-FR (Fit & Proper) and Article 11 SSM-FR (passporting), as well as submissions under national law.
