CSA Staff Notice 55-316 Questions and Answers on Insider Reporting and SEDI

Section 4.3.13

What Is The Significance Of The Codes Used On SEDI?

It is important to use the correct codes to avoid any uncertainty as to the nature of your transaction and to avoid misleading the marketplace.

You use codes to describe:

  • the type of the transaction you are reporting (nature of transaction),
  • the type of ownership or other interest you have of the securities, and
  • your relationship with the issuer

For a current list, see the instruction page of Form 55-102F6 (available on SEDI though the on-line help and the securities regulatory authorities’ websites -see Appendix A).
