Regime of use
The use of the IMAS portal is mandatory by law or as administrative practice in some countries and voluntary in others, also depending on the process category. For detailed information you can consult the regime of use.
Supervised institutions can create their own users and manage their users’ access to the IMAS portal. They appoint delegated administrators who carry out this task.
For third-party users, the ECB will act as the administrator.
Registering into the IMAS portal

Creating your user accounts
Delegated administrators can access the ECB Identity Portal to create new user accounts for their organisation and the IMAS portal to grant them granular permissions. For third parties, user accounts are directly created by the ECB.
