On November 13, 2014, CDS' notice and request for comment regarding proposed amendments to the CDS fee schedule relating to the issuer services (Issuer Services Program) was published for a 30 day comment period.
CDS would like to amend its fee schedule to start charging fees for services that are currently provided to securities issuers. These services include the (i) issuance of International Security Identification Numbers ("ISINs"), (ii) depository eligibility, securities registration-related services including certificate and late request fees and, (iii) entitlement and corporate action ("E&CA") event management services. CDS received 17 submissions including from representatives of government Issuers, exchange traded fund Issuers, exchange operators, transfer agents and the investment dealer community. Letters from commenters that accepted public disclosure of their submission were published on CDS' website on March 5, 2015.
On April 23, 2015, CDS published their Summary of Public Comments and Responses to the Notice and Request for Comments (Summary). To obtain a copy of CDS' Summary please go to CDS' website at www.cds.ca/resource/en/154.
