Standardised and secure pre-issuance messaging

Our European Pre-Issuance Messaging service (EPIM) is an automated ISIN and common code request and allocation system that automates and improves the process of issuing designated European Money Market Instruments.

By connecting all parties using standardised and real-time messaging, EPIM improves the exchange of secure information by providing: 

  • increased data accuracy and quality
  • fewer errors, discrepancies and delays
  • reduced operational costs and risks

New Global Note and New Safekeeping Structure

Since its introduction in 2006, we have supported the issuance, processing and safekeeping of international bearer debt securities issued using a New Global Note (NGN) form.

The NGN structure and New Safekeeping Structure (NSS) are now mandatory to enable newly issued international debt securities to be recognised as eligible collateral for Eurosystem monetary policy and intra-day credit operations. The NGN structure co-exists with the Classical Global Note (CGN) structure, serviced by the Common Depositaries Depositaries Depositaries (Euroclear Bank and Clearstream Banking Luxembourg).
