BCN 2003/49 - BCI 33-512 - Exemption for foreign advisers from the NRD account requirements [BCN - Rescinded]

Published Date: 2003-11-20
Effective Date: 2003-11-20

The Executive Director has granted an exemption to Multilateral Instrument 31-102 National Registration Database (MI 31-102) to exempt foreign advisers from the requirement to have an NRD account.

Substance and Purpose
For certain advisers it is impractical to establish and maintain an NRD account because they do not have a physical presence in Canada. The purpose of the exemption is to permit such advisers to use NRD without having to set up an NRD account.
