Where the customer has stored or archived off SEDOL codes for regulatory purposes, as long as the customer can demonstrate that there are controls in place to ensure SEDOL codes that only named individuals can access that data for regulatory or regulatory support purposes, then all SEDOL codes within this database can be discounted.

Where a vendor is unable to control or permission the level of codes provided to the customer, codes which are not being processed, as defined above, may be discounted. In such cases, the vendor is required to provide to the London Stock Exchange lists of all customers that have the ability to access SEDOL codes and the London Stock Exchange will contact such customers to ascertain whether they are processing SEDOL codes.
