To ensure compliance with the abstention requirement set forth in Articles 8, 10 and 14 of Regulation (EU) no. 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014, investment services providers shall establish and maintain an appropriate procedure for monitoring the issuers and financial instruments on which they have inside information. This monitoring shall be proportionate to the risks identified and will concern, where applicable:
transactions in financial instruments by the investment services provider for its own account;

To this end, the investment services provider shall draw up a watch list of the issuers on which it has inside information.
The relevant entities shall inform the compliance officer at once when they believe they possess inside information.
In such case, the issuer shall be put on the watch list, under the supervision of the compliance officer.
The relevant entities shall inform the compliance officer when they believe that information they had previously reported pursuant to the sixth subparagraph has ceased to be inside information. The contents of the watch list are confidential.
Dissemination of items on the watch list is restricted to the persons designated by name in the procedures referred to in the first subparagraph of 315-1.
