The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) issued a notice on 16 March 2020 informing the public that almost all CySEC staff is working remotely. Only the crisis management team will continue work at CySEC’s premises, in order to deal with urgent issues that may arise.
CySEC also issued a series of circulars to supervised entities regarding the impact on their activities from COVID-19 and deadlines for submission of reports and documents. These are Circulars C363, C364 and C365.
CySEC is contactable through the relevant email addresses available on the Commission’s website https://www.cysec.gov.cy/en-GR/cysec/contact/. Appropriate measures have also been taken to facilitate the submission of all applications electronically, including in relation to the payment of fees.
CySEC is closely monitoring and evaluating all developments related to COVID-19, as well as the impact it may have on the activities of its supervised entities and the market, taking appropriate action where necessary.
