We are pleased to inform you that a new version 6.05 of the SOFiE application will be available from January 17th, 2022, based on the version 6.03 released on November 18th, 2021.
There are no new features but the client uses version 2.17.1 of the "log4j" library which fixes an important security flaw.
Version 6.05, as 6.03, contains some corrections concerning the VIRREP reports (e.g. V0101, V0104, etc), the S0001, S0101, S0104, S0105 files and the ESPREP reports.
This update will be available only for the SOFiE Sort version 6.03 and concerns new reports for BCL and CSSF.
New feature in version 6.03 :
1- New regulation ECB/2020/59 (CDDP6)
CDDP6 documentation is available on the BCL website.
All these reports will be added to the existing SOFiE VIRT package.
2- New BCL circular 2021/244
Among the impacted reports, the following reports have technical changes:
- S 1.8 "INFORMATION ON SECURITIZATION TRANSACTIONS CARRIED OUT BY CREDIT INSTITUTIONS":
- - TPTBB "SECURITY BY SECURITY REPORTING - BALANCE SHEET DATA" :
o - TPTBBL Layout 5 Luxembourg entity:
o - TPTBBN Layout 5 Luxembourg entity and its foreign branches:
For other reports, the technical version (XSD schema version) has not changed, only the business version (layout) has changed.
BCL has not yet communicated a revocation date for the old XSD.
3- New schema SDMX v1.0.6 for AnaCredit
New XSD v1.0.6 will be mandatory for AnaCredit as of January 25, 2022. The old XSD is no longer valid as of this date.
4- New CSSF Circular-CODERES 21/13
Changes in CSSF-CODERES Circular 21/13 result in a new OTHREP-BNNNN-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX_LU_SRF070002_EACIND_2022-01-31_yyyymmddhhmmssnnnn report that will be included in the existing SOFiE ESPT package.
As we already mentioned in our previous communications, all these changes will only be available on SOFiE 6 series.
It is therefore imperative that you update to the latest version of the 6 series. As a reminder, it is not possible to switch from version 5 to version 6 automatically.
