1.  Introduction

   The European System of Central Banks (ESCB) is composed of the
   European Central Bank (ECB) [ECB] and the national central banks
   (NCBs) of all 27 EU Member States (Article 107.01 of the Treaty) --
   whether they have adopted the Euro currency or not.  One central bank
   belonging to the ESCB is Deutsche Bundesbank [DBBK], which, for the
   purpose of this document, is acting on behalf of the ESCB.  The term
   Eurosystem is used to refer to the entity composed of the ECB and the
   NCBs of those member states that have adopted the Euro currency.  For
   further information on the tasks of the ESCB and the Eurosystem,
   please refer to the ECB web site ([ECB], [ESCB], [Eurosystem]).

   The ESCB provides the TARGET2 (Trans-European Automated Realtime
   Gross Settlement Express Transfer) system for market infrastructure;
   it is an interbank payment system for the real-time processing of
   cross-border transfers throughout the European Union.  In addition,
   the ESCB is currently implementing TARGET2-Securities, a future
   securities settlement platform that offers a new, harmonized and
   centralized method of settling securities in central bank money.  The
   TARGET2-Securities project was initiated by the Eurosystem as
   platform owner in 2006.  TARGET2-Securities is currently under
   development.  Four central banks of the Eurosystem -- Deutsche
   Bundesbank, Banque de France, Banca d'Italia, and Banco de Espana
   (4CB) -- are entrusted with the development and the operation of the
   platform.  For details, see [T2S_ECB] and [T2S_DBBK].

   The future users of TARGET2-Securities will communicate and exchange
   information with the platform via messages (a set of structured
