CMTA.DACS certification allows custody service providers to demonstrate to customers that a custody solution meets the high industry standards outlined in CMTA's Digital Assets Custody Standard (DACS) for the safeguarding of private keys controlling digital assets.

Certification is available to providers of professional custody services (based in Switzerland or abroad) whose infrastructure or operations meet the requirements and recommendations set out in CMTA's DACS.

Apply for the certification that reflects your services:

  • CMTA.DACS (Operations) V2.0 is available for the operator of a digital asset custody solution
  • CMTA.DACS (Infrastructure) V.2.0 is available for an infrastructure solution provider, who supplies the infrastructure to custody digital assets, but is not involved in the operation of the solution
  • CMTA.DACS V2.0 demonstrates compliance with all operations and infrastructure requirements of the DACS

To apply for certification, complete the application form available in the download section.

The certification marks are registered  with the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property.
