Programme on the BdL Market

Listing on the BdL market will in most cases require submission of a base prospectus to the CSSF. Once your base prospectus has been reviewed and approved, tranches will be listed and admitted to trading.

  • It is not mandatory to appoint a listing agent to list at LuxSE; you can submit applications directly with us. However, you may choose to appoint a listing agent to submit requests on your behalf.

    Our listing members can act as a listing agent for you.

  • To list under a programme on the BdL market, an issuer must first file a base prospectus with the CSSF within the e-Prospectus web platform. To find out more, visit the CSSF’s website:

    Note that some issuers, such as Public International Bodies, should instead send their base prospectus directly to LuxSE for approval, in accordance with Part 3, Chapter 2 of the Prospectus Law.

  • In order to list on the BdL market, securities issued under a programme must fulfil the following criteria, among others:

    • Securities are eligible for clearing and settlement

  • After listing and admission to trading, issuers are required to fulfil specific reporting obligations. Issuers must file documents containing regulated information with the CSSF, as outlined under the Law of January 2008 (as amended), which implements the requirements of the EU Transparency Directive.

    Issuers must also file information and scheduled corporate events with LuxSE (Part 1, Chapter 9 of the Rules & Regulations).

    Issuers on the BdL market can take advantage of LuxSE’s FIRST, a dedicated service where issuers can simultaneously distribute publications to the market, the Officially Appointed Mechanism (OAM) and the CSSF.

  • In the context of MiFID II / MiFIR and MAR, the LuxSE is obliged to collect a ‘Legal Entity Identifier’ or ‘LEI’ code from any issuer operating on its regulated market (Bourse de Luxembourg) and on its Multilateral Trading Facility (Euro MTF) and communicate it to the relevant supervisory authorities.

    You can apply for and renew an LEI code directly via LuxSE.
