Vietnam Securities Depository (VSD) allocates and manages local security codes for all securities registered at VSD. Local security codes are used as transaction codes of issuers when they register to be listed/traded on stock exchanges. Besides, VSD is also designated to be the unique and official agency of Vietnam allocating International Securities Identification Numbers (ISIN) for all securities in Vietnam Securities Market.
Local securities codes and ISINs are simultaneously allocated with issuance of securities registration certificates when issuers register their securities at VSD.
Securities codes allocated by VSD will not be changed except for issuers' securities registration cancellation. In this case, VSD will cancel securities codes and the respective ISINs.
Upon being allocated, information on local securities codes and ISINs will be published on VSD’s website for related parties’reference.
