Issuance and registration of short-term bills

Since the related laws and regulations, as those that were relating to electronic signatures, have been in place altogether with the necessary online transaction systems, the conditions have been deemed ripe enough for dematerialized issuance in the primary market. TDCC therefore has planned the issuance of book-entry short-term beneficial securities, asset-backed commercial paper (ABCP), and negotiable certificates of deposit (NCD) into bills market, and has launched the system on March 27, 2006 and January 3, 2011, respectively. In the future, TDCC will continue to promote the dematerialized issuance of Commercial Paper II (CPII).
