The Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA) celebrates its 30th anniversary this week. The association was founded on 29 January 1992 by 22 National Numbering Agencies (NNAs) following publication of the International Securities Identification Number (ISIN) standard ISO 6166 on the 1 November 1981, a standard driven by industry need to improve cross-border trading. ANNA now has 119 members and partners globally allocating ISINs for more than 200 jurisdictions. Its mission is to foster standardisation in the financial industry by upholding and promoting ISO’s principles for adoption, development and maintenance of the ISIN to identify, FISN to describe, and CFI to classify financial and referential instruments.
