The certification is required to be submitted within 30 calendar days of the fund’s fiscal year end. The certification can be done by submitting a Company Event Form.  

    Data Submission Requirements and Templates for All Other Products

    In order to monitor compliance with the requirements, Nasdaq collects the following data from ETP issuers regarding the index or reference asset underlying the ETP: 

    Passive ETFs and ETNs: Index Component File due 30 calendar days following the end of the fund's fiscal quarter. 

    Active ETFs: Portfolio Component File due 30 calendar days following the end of the fund's fiscal quarter.

    NOTE: Submission of the index component or reference asset data described above is NOT required for Rule 6c-11 ETFs pursuant to Nasdaq Rule 5704. 

    Index Rebalances/Reconstitutions: In lieu of submitting the quarterly component file, issuers can submit an index component file following an index rebalance or reconstitution if the rebalance or reconstitution took place within the fiscal quarter. Issuers who submit this file in connection with a rebalance or reconstitution do not have to submit a separate component file for the same quarter.

    Issuers can submit component information and annual certifications using the Nasdaq Listing Center by completing the Company Event Form.
