A signed copy and a conformed copy of an Adherence Letter must be received in order for ISDA to list a party as having adhered to the 2002 Master Agreement Protocol. (See "ISDA Procedures") The conformed copy is required for posting the letter on the ISDA web site because of membersí concern about posting signatures on the Internet.

The most common problem experienced in the adherence process for prior Protocols was the failure to include a conformed copy of the Adherence Letter. We remind parties that a conformed copy, together with a signed copy, must be submitted to ISDA in connection with adherence to the 2002 Master Agreement Protocol.
