Yes. For example, if an individual is a reporting insider of several SEDI issuers, and each of these issuers has arrangements to file insider reports on behalf of that individual, then it is possible that this individual will have a different agent for each issuer.
No. Only individuals can register as agents.
Yes, any individual can register as an agent. Therefore, any number of law clerks at a particular law firm can register. Each SEDI user should register individually so that he or she has his or her own SEDI user ID and password.
Generally, yes. However, you must select the category that best suits your activity. For example, if you are a reporting insider and you will only be filing insider reports for yourself, you should register as an “insider”.
If you fulfill multiple roles, you must register as an agent. For example, you would register as an agent if you will be filing:
- insider information for one or more reporting insiders other than yourself
- issuer information for more than one issuer
- insider and issuer information for yourself, several insiders and an issuer
You will need to have each client’s access key.
An access key is a unique case-sensitive alpha-numeric code issued by SEDI or the SEDI operator to an insider or SEDI issuer that has filed an insider profile or issuer profile supplement on SEDI. If you set up a client’s insider profile or issuer profile supplement, SEDI will give you their access key. If someone else sets up the client’s profile information, you will need to request the access key from your client.
No. However, if you, as an agent, are filing an insider report in paper format in certain circumstances (see question 4.3.7), you still need to file with the relevant securities regulatory authority a power of attorney. However, an agent does not need to file a power of attorney for an insider report of an individual that is filed in paper format under the temporary hardship exemption.
No. You, as an agent, cannot register someone else as a SEDI user. The paper format copy of the SEDI user registration form that is sent to the SEDI operator for validation purposes must contain the manual or facsimile signature of the individual being registered.
