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 2005 CDS Index Protocol. (See "ISDA Procedures")

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 2005 CDS Index Protocol.
