The CBRS, which can be administered in 15-20 minutes, contains the following nine scales: language deficit; apraxia; disorientation; agitation; need for routine; depression; higher cognitive deficits; memory disorder; and dementia.
However, caution should be used when interpreting scores for persons with suspected mild TBI since normative data for the CBRS is based on a standardization sample of individuals who were primarily elderly and/or disabled by Alzheimer's disease and other related disorders.
Legislation surrounding cost basis reporting presents a new challenge to financial intermediaries and CBRS
aims to help the industry comply with the regulation that continues to roll out in various market segments.
For the rest of this year, CBRS

With customers on a tight deadline to comply with the upcoming reporting changes, DTCC's strategy is to finalize business requirements before the end of this year, make the necessary coding changes and test the system early next year, and be ready to roll out the enhanced version of the CBRS
system for participant testing by Q3 2010.

ratings and the new harmonized ratings do not reflect a change in credit quality per se; the new ratings reflect an evaluation based on a different analytical framework.
A process is underway to harmonize all CBRS
ratings with the Standard & Poor's framework, which includes translating all ratings onto the Standard & Poor's ratings scale.
31, 2000, Standard & Poor's and CBRS
announced the combination of their operations in Canada.
Ratings on specific debt issues previously assigned by CBRS
to RioCan will remain in effect until June 1, 2001, when they will be formally withdrawn (unless superseded in light of credit-related rating actions in the interim).
