Committee On Uniform Security Identification Procedures (CUSIP) Service Bureau

Categories: Stocks,

The CUSIP Service Bureau seeks to assign unique numbers and standardized descriptions in a timely and accurate manner, using its best efforts to use primary or reliable sources of information. However, because of the possibility of human or mechanical error by securities issuers, CUSlP's sources, Standard & Poor's or others, neither Standard & Poor's nor the american bankers association guarantees the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of any information, and Standard & Poor's and the american bankers association are not responsible for any errors or omissions or for the results obtained from use of such information.
