This code is primarily used by Issuers domiciled outside the United States; while in the U.S., the ubiquitous securities identifier code aka reference data for stocks or bonds is the “CUSIP” (Committee on Uniform Security Identification Procedures). Issuers of securities that are domiciled within the United Kingdom will tend to secure both an ISIN code and UK-centric “SEDOL” (Stock Exchange Daily Official List).
