The DSB has adopted the ISO Currency Code list (ISO 4217) for all currency attributes. To accommodate offshore currencies, the DSB has introduced ‘Place of Settlement’ (ISO 3166) as an additional attribute in the FX Non-Standard Product Definitions. This allows an offshore location to be input against an onshore currency for example to recognise CNH, the user should input CNY into ‘Settlement Currency’ and Hong Kong into ‘Place of Settlement’.
