The Bank Board approved a Decree of Národná banka Slovenska on the elements of applications for a foreign exchange licence and on detailed requirements for trading in foreign exchange assets.

The decree will enter into force on 1 July 2013.

The Bank Board approved a Decision of Národná banka Slovenska on general terms and conditions of access to the “UNIVERZAL-NET” data network.

The operation of the original infrastructure of the “UNIVERZAL-NET” is to be terminated before 31 March 2014.
