The International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) No. 3402, is an assurance report on the description of controls, their design and operating effectiveness. It supersedes and replaces the former SAS 70 Report.

This report is intended for customers who have used Clearstream's system, and their auditors. It provides them with valuable information regarding Clearstream's controls and the effectiveness of those controls, through a detailed description and an independent assessment of whether the controls were placed in operation, suitably designed, and operating effectively.

It greatly assists the customer's auditor in planning the audit of the customer's financial statements. Without the ISAE 3402, the customer institution would possibly incur additional costs by sending their auditors to Clearstream to perform their procedures.

The report is also intended for Cleastream's regulatory authority, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (“CSSF”).
