The Registration Instructions message type may be used by institutions or retail intermediaries wishing to electronically submit registration information to a broker or fund manager (for CIV) for an order or for an allocation.

A Registration Instructions message can be submitted as new, cancel or replace. The RegistTransType <514> field indicates the purpose of the message. When submitting replace or cancel RegistTransType <514> messages the RegistRefID <508> field is required. Replacement Registration Instructions messages must contain all data for the replacement registration.


The Registration Instructions message contains repeating fields for each of several joint registrants. The number of registration details instances is indicated in NoRegistDtls <473>. The repeating fields are shown in the message definition below in typeface Bold-Italic and indented with the → symbol. The field's relative position within the repeating group in the message is important. For example, each instance of registration must be in the order as shown in the message definition below.
