The Central Bank has extended the deadline for companies submitting details of senior staff after its online reporting system was affected by technical issues.

The problems relate to the annual return companies must make giving details of staff in certain senior management positions at their organisation.

Submissions for the annual Pre-Approval Controlled Functions (PCF) Returns had been due on 30 April, however this deadline has now been extended to 30 June.

The Central Bank apologised for the inconvenience and said it was working on an interim solution to allow for all the relevant information to be submitted.
