Report a Breach

The Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) encourages people to report to it potential or actual breaches, committed by credit institutions and investment firms that fall within the scope of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive – Directive 2004/39/EC.

What kind of breaches can be reported?

This breach reporting channel has been set up to deal with breaches of Maltese legal provisions transposing the Capital Requirements Directive IV – Directive (EU) 2013/36/EU and the Investment Firms Directive – Directive (EU) 2019/2034, and breaches of the Capital Requirements Regulation – Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and the Investment Firms Regulation – Regulation (EU) 2019/2033.

This breach reporting channel does not deal with breaches relating to consumer protection or the implementation of anti-money laundering rules.

All reports must be submitted in good faith and with reasonable grounds.
