- In all countries/ zones etc., where there is a presence of an authorized BCI CSD, all CSU stocks shall be supplied ONLY by the local CSD and NOT directly by BCI or any of its other types of business partners.
- There are four CSD Partner categories – the Diamond; Platinum; Gold and Silver – decided on the amount of investments being made by the partner.
- In the 2012-2013 version of the CSD program, the minimum stocking requirements are of 250, 500, 750 and 1000 CSUs for the Diamond; Platinum; Gold and Silver partner categories respectively.
