2. Electronic Reporting and Submission of Information

2.1 A Member is required to submit the following information, except that in the case of a Bank Trading Member, the following requirements apply only in respect of the Bank Trading Member's business that is governed by this Rules:
(a) Rule 3.3.17 : Reporting of Account Identity (BC4A)
(i) Except for Trading Members that engage solely in House Trades and Proprietary Trades of its Affiliates, a Member is required to submit to the Exchange, using Form BC4A, details of any new account which is used for trading and/or carrying of trades done on Exchange, other exchanges and over-the-counter.
(ii) If the account is a disclosed omnibus account, Form BC4A must be submitted for each sub-account. However, if the account is an undisclosed omnibus account and the sub-accounts are not used for position reporting, Form BC4A is not required for the sub-account(s). Members need not submit Form BC4A to the Exchange for trading accounts which are to be linked to a position account using the Clearing System.
(iii) If there are any changes to information stated in a BC4A account that has been submitted previously, the Exchange must be notified as soon as is practicable, within the next business day.
(iv) Members should notify the Exchange, when an account is closed in their system, as soon as is practicable, to prevent unauthorised trading in the account.
(v) Form BC4A serves as identification for the holder of the account and no single account number should be assigned to more than one customer, even after the account has been closed.
(vi) The operational procedures and timelines in relation to the submission and procedure for the completion of Form BC4A are set out in Appendix 2.

Refer to Appendix 2 of Regulatory Notice 3.3.17; 3.3.18; 3.3.26; 3.3.27.
(vii) Members are required to put in place internal controls to ensure that the Form BC4A has been properly approved by the Chief Executive Officer ("CEO"), or such senior executive (e.g. Deputy CEO, General Manager or Operations Manager) as is authorised by the CEO, before submission. Approved staff performing the submission of Form BC4A, including the authorised senior executives, should not be directly involved in trading activities. Members are reminded that the primary responsibility for ensuring the accuracy of the Form BC4A submitted falls on the CEOs of the respective Member firms.
(viii) Any account number used in position reporting must correspond exactly to the account number reported in Form BC4A. Members are required to ensure all information reported under Form BC4A is complete and accurate as the Exchange relies on these records for its risk management and market surveillance programmes. Due care should be exercised in completing the Form.
