Frequently Asked Questions

What is an ISIN?

ISIN stands for International Securities Identification Number (ISO 6166), which is a 12-character code that identifies a financial security, such as a stock or a bond.

Can I apply for an ISIN on this website?

No.

Where can I apply for an ISIN?

In locales where a National Numbering Agency (NNA) recognised by the Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA) operates, this organisation issues the ISIN for securities whose issuer is registered or domiciled in the country where the NNA operates. For debt securities the NNA who issues the ISIN is either one of the international securities clearing organisations or the responsible NNA in accordance with ISO 6166.
In the case of those countries where no NNA exists, a substitute agency allocates the number.
An example of an NNA is Euroclear.
