Uniform Practices Manual

Uniform PracticesFor the Clearance and Settlement of Mortgage-Backed Securities and Other Related Securities

SIFMA's comprehensive Uniform Practices Manual is considered by many to be the industry standard. These are trading, clearance and settlement guidelines representing common industry practice, providing the information you need in one place.

With the help of a team of industry experts, we developed the Uniform Practices for the Clearance and Settlement of Mortgage-Backed Securities and Other Related Securities and first published them in 1981. These guidelines were written to provide a common understanding of the terms and conditions for confirming, comparing and settling mortgage and other related securities. The current Manual represents a comprehensive revision and consolidation of all the guidelines since their original issuance. They are continually updated and expanded to reflect the growth and development of the mortgage and asset-backed securities industry.

The Manual is available as an electronic subscription accessible from our Web site.
