BS ISO 6166:2021pdf download.Financial services-International securities identification number ( ISIN ).
No worldwide numbering system existed at the time of the publication of the first edition of BS ISO 6166. Countries with a developed financial market identified issues of securities by means of code numbers, which are without any significance outside the country concerned. Instruments of the same issue were identified by means of different numbers in the country where they were physically held, booked or both, with the result that the national numbers may not be applicable in cross-border transactions.
Because of its strong rationalization effect, an internationally applicable numbering system substantially facilitates and supports international business in financial instruments. Such a system is provided by BS ISO 6166. Since the publication of the first edition of BS ISO 6166, its scope has expanded from a focus on securities to a much broader range of financial instruments. In addition, since the publication of the first edition, the Registration Authority (RA) has relied on the work of national numbering agencies (NNAs) which play an integral role in this rationalization effort and in the implementation of BS ISO 6166.
In preparing BS ISO 6166, care has been taken to conserve the national systems to the maximum possible extent, not only because of the good routine and valuable experience collected in this field but also to facilitate the adoption of the worldwide system. Moreover, it provides a system which is easy to apply internationally and establishes an information network which ensures that the required
BS ISO 6166 provides a uniform structure for the identification of financial instruments as well as referential instruments (see Annex A) using a unique identification code and associated minimum descriptive data (see Annex B).

b) The basic code, which is nine characters (alphanumeric) in length. Where the existing national code consists of nine characters, this code may be used. Where the existing national code consists of fewer than nine characters, this also may be used, but zeros shall be inserted in front of the national code. Where a national check digit exists, it shall be regarded as part of the basic code within the nine characters.
c) A check digit, computed using the modulus 10 “double-add-double” formula as specified in Annex C.BS-ISO-6166-2021
