As a result of the introduction of Section 871(m) of the US Internal Revenue code on 1 Jan 2017 we will temporarily suspend the issuance of in-scope (Delta-1) products, and will also mark existing ‘legacy’ products as sold-out and price on a bid-only basis.

This will avoid any potential risk of double taxation (where both the issuer and custodian banks might withhold the same tax amounts) and will protect the interests of end investors until such time as a common approach is agreed by all industry participants. The industry works on a consistent solution at a high priority.
