a counterparty’s segregated depository account number will be required in customers' settlement instructions for all debt securities transactions via the Thailand Securities Depository Co. Ltd (TSD), in order to enable straight-through processing.

This new instruction requirement has been agreed by all custodians in the market and will follow implementation of a new TSD account structure, effective 24 August 2015, to support the Pre-Settlement Matching System.
