USA PATRIOT Act Certification

USA PATRIOT Act Certification

Pursuant to the USA PATRIOT Act and final rules issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, a U.S. bank or a U.S. broker-dealer in securities (a "Covered Financial Institution") is required to obtain certain information from any "Foreign Bank" that maintains a correspondent account with it.

As permitted by the final rules, Mizuho Bank, Ltd. has prepared a Global Certification for use by any financial institution that believes it requires a USA PATRIOT Act Certification from a Mizuho Bank, Ltd. entity, for example, an overseas branch of Mizuho Bank, Ltd.

Please use this Certification instead of asking an individual Mizuho Bank, Ltd. business to complete a separate Certification form. If the particular Mizuho Bank, Ltd. business that maintains a correspondent account with your institution is not listed in our Certification, or if you have any questions with regard to this Certification, please advise us by e-mailing us at
