CUSIP

Category — Issue Parameters
The CUSIP code (CUSIP / a code of the Committee on Uniform Securities Identification Procedures) is an international code that uniquely identifies financial instruments. It allows for the identification and differentiation of various securities such as bonds, shares, warrants, derivatives, funds, etc. The CUSIP is assigned to all securities listed or traded in the USA and Canada, including OTC securities.

The CUSIP consists of nine alphanumeric symbols. The first six symbols are known as the "base" or "CUSIP-6" and stand for the issuer of the security. The seventh and eighth symbols stand for the type of the security and the ninth symbol is a control digit and generated automatically. The CUSIP code corresponds to the NSIN symbols of the ISIN-кода (symbols 3–11). For example, in CUSIP 084664BL4, symbols 084664 stand for the issuer Berkshire Hathaway, BL stand for the bond and 4 is a control digit.

The CUSIP system is owned by the American Bankers Association and Standard & Poors rating agency.
