If an Adhering Party opts to submit its Adherence Letter by email to protocol@isda.org, a signed and conformed copy of the Adherence Letter must be received.

In addition, each Adhering Party must promptly submit the originals of the signed and conformed copies of the Adherence Letter it submits by email to ISDA’s New York office or ISDA's London office. The effective date for submission of an Adherence Letter submitted by email to protocol@isda.org will be the date it is received by email, but it is imperative that the hard copies of the signed and conformed Adherence Letter be sent promptly to either ISDA’s New York office or ISDA's London office.

We remind parties that any Adherence Letter emailed to protocol@isda.org must be submitted in accordance with Section 2(c)(i) of the 2005 CDS Index Protocol.
