Efficient Fulfilment of Legal Reporting Obligations

Reporting Obligations and Scope

Our trading participants and reporting members are subject to reporting obligations and required to report all the information necessary to ensure a transparent market. Trades and transmissions of orders in reportable financial instruments done by securities firms subject to the reporting obligation shall be reported no matter if they were traded on- or off order book, executed on- or off exchange and regardless of whether the order is on behalf of a client or for proprietary trading.

Your Benefits on the Swiss Stock Exchange

Trade Reporting & Transaction Reporting

The legal duty to report distinguishes between reports in terms of post trade transparency (trade reporting) and reports in terms of traceability to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements (transaction reporting). The Swiss Stock Exchange publishes the details of trade reports required to ensure the post trade transparency of securities trading whereas transaction reports are not published. Further details as well as information about transactions subject to the reporting obligation are available in our Reporting Guide (see below).

Register to Submit Reports

To register with the Reporting Office as a Reporting Member, a corresponding application form must be filled in and submitted to Member Services.

If the application is accepted, the Swiss Stock Exchange grants the Reporting Member free access to the Reporting Tool in the Member Section, for which the Reporting Member then needs to request a user account.

Participants are deemed registered with the Reporting Office and are automatically registered for the Member Section during the connection process.

Discover Our Reporting Tool

Reporting Members can send their reports via the Reporting Tool, consisting of a web-based graphical user interface (Trade & Transaction Report) and a Transaction File Interface (Transaction Report). Participants can send their trade reports via the Standard Trading Interface (STI) but may also use our Reporting Tool as a back-up solution.

Foreign Disclosure Offices

These are the foreign disclosure offices currently recognized  by SIX, as well as approved publication arrangements and approved reporting mechanisms for our remote members.
