I. - All issuers of financial instruments admitted for trading on a regulated market or on an organised multilateral trading facility within the meaning of Article 524-1 may prepare a registration document every year, as specified in an AMF instruction.
This registration document can take the form of an annual report to shareholders. In this case, a table showing the concordance between the headings in the instruction mentioned in the first paragraph and the corresponding headings in the annual report shall be provided.
II. - The registration document shall be filed with the AMF. If the issuer has not previously submitted three consecutive registration documents to the AMF, this document shall be registered by the AMF before it is published.
III. - The registration document shall be made available to the public free of charge on the day after filing, or registration where such is the case. Any person who so requests may view the document at any time at the registered office of the issuer or the offices of the paying agent. A copy of the document must be sent free of charge to any person who requests one.
The electronic version of the registration document shall be sent to the AMF for posting on its website.
IV. - Once the registration document has been filed or recorded, the issuer can make regular updates, which are filed with the AMF in accordance with Point 2°, concerning published accounting data and new factors relating to its organisation, business, risks, financial condition and results.
These successive updates are made available to the public in accordance with Point 3°.
IV bis. - Where an issuer files or registers a registration document with the AMF in French, it may also file or register the document in a language that is customary in the sphere of finance, in accordance with the terms of the instruction. In this case, the successive updates shall be drafted both in French and in the same language customary in the sphere of finance.
V. - Where, in connection with its supervisory duties, the AMF finds an omission or a material inaccuracy in the registration document, it shall inform the issuer, which must amend the document and file the corrections with the AMF.
These corrections shall be made available to the public as soon as possible, in accordance with Point 3°.
Any omission or inaccuracy, with regard to this General Regulation or to AMF instructions, that could manifestly distort an investor's assessment of the organisation, business, risks, financial condition or results of the issuer shall be considered as material.
Any other observations made by the AMF shall be brought to the attention of the issuer, which shall take them into account in the subsequent registration document.
VI. - Where the registration document filed with or registered by the AMF is published within four months of the financial year- end and contains information referred to in a of point 1° of Article 221-1, the issuer is not required to publish this information separately.
VII. - Where an updated registration document is filed within three months of the end of the first half-year and contains the information referred to in b of point 1° of Article 221-1, the issuer is not required to publish this information separately.
VIII. - To qualify for the publication waivers referred to in VI and VII, the issuer shall publish a news release, in accordance with Article 221-3, explaining how the registration document and its updates are to be made available.
