When Will I Be Issued My Password And Id, As Opposed To My Access Key? How are they different?

You will be issued a password and a SEDI user ID after you complete, certify and submit your SEDI user registration on the system. The password is tied to the SEDI user ID and allows you, as that SEDI user, to log on to SEDI.

Each time you create an insider profile or an issuer profile supplement, SEDI will display an insider number (if you are an insider) and an access key online to you as creator of the profile. In addition, SEDI will also send an e-mail (if an e-mail address is provided) or letter containing the access key to the insider or issuer representative or agent.

An access key is a case-sensitive alpha-numeric code that is connected either to an insider or issuer profile supplement and issued once an insider profile or issuer profile supplement is created. It allows you, as an agent, insider, or issuer representative, to make a filing once the insider profile or issuer profile supplement is created. The system gives one access key per profile. Call the SEDI Technical Service Desk at 1-800-219-5381 if you forget your password or your access key.
