Brexit

The DSB is keeping abreast of the publicly available information on Brexit and considering the possible implications. There are currently no foreseeable matters which require the DSB to take action in relation to the core ISIN service (creation and search activities). Brexit-related service disruption planning remains, at this time, a subset of the DSBs’ existing Crisis Contingency plans (including any diligence on our reliance on suppliers and subcontractors).

 

UK ToTV/ uToTV Service

The DSB has notified industry of the introduction of its UK ToTV/uToTV service in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The details of Approach, Scope and Timelines are laid out in a user notification. Please click on the notification button on the right.
An accompanying UK ToTV/uToTV FAQ document is also available and regularly updated as user queries arise.
