Requests for approval of a new sub-fund within an existing fund structure must be transmitted via a single new questionnaire form, the CSSF has announced, in order to standardise further the information the regulator requires for examination of the application. The CSSF says the new application process will enable the gathering of accurate data, information and documents through one standardised questionnaire, which replaces the following four application questionnaires currently in use. The new questionnaire includes information concerning the Benchmarks Regulation, EMIR and the Sustainable Financial Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). The new questionnaire is valid immediately, but the CSSF will accept the previous ones until March 12.
