Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On April 30, 2012, the Canadian Securities Administrators (the “CSA”) announced the official designation of DBRS Limited, Fitch, Inc., Moody’s Canada Inc. and Standard & Poor’s Rating Services (Canada) as Designated Rating Organizations (“DROs”) under National Instrument NI 25-101 Designated Rating Organizations (“NI 25-101”).

NI 25-101, which came into force on April 20, 2012, established a regulatory framework for the oversight of credit rating organizations by permitting them to apply for DRO status. The CSA designation orders make each of the DROs subject to regulation under applicable Canadian securities laws.
