These include those for registration of users, unique identifier for each record as well as user, “consent framework for providing access to information to third parties” and security of the system as well as information.

Besides, guidelines for submission of information, identification and verification of persons, authentication of information, verification of information, data integrity, risk management framework, preservation of information and purging of information have been issued.

The Code, which became operational in December last year, provides for a market-determined and time-bound insolvency resolution process.
