ISIN Issuance and Eligibility
Requests for the issuance of an international securities identification number (ISIN) take approximately one (1) business day to complete,
provided that all information and documents required by CDS are included in the request
Requests for the issuance of an ISIN received after 4:00 PM ET will be deemed to have been submitted on the subsequent business day.
Requests for multiple ISINS - such as mutual funds, multiple series, NHAs and medium term notes of the same issuer- may take longer to complete than the one (1) business day stated above.
The issuer or their representative is responsible for ensuring that details related to the issuance of an ISIN for a listed or to-be-listed security are provided to the appropriate listing venue.
Requests for ISIN issuance
are in all cases subject to Canadian and U.S. holiday processing schedules
Upon issuance of an ISIN by the appropriate National Numbering Agency, ISINs and associated security details and reference documentation are available to the public from multiple sources, and CDS has no obligation of confidentiality in respect thereto.

This documentation must be provided using the
application a minimum of two (2) full business days prior to, but not including, the closing date of the issue and/or upon the effective date of the corporate action event.
Failure to provide accurate disclosure regarding the certification of the security issue may jeopardize the security's eligibility and the ability of such securities to settle via CDSX.
