3. The order of the sections A-E is mandatory. Within each of the sections the elements shall be disclosed in the order they appear in the Tables.

4. Where an element is not applicable to a prospectus the element should appear in the summary with the mention "not applicable".

5. To the extent required by an element, descriptions should be brief.

6. Summaries should not contain cross-references to specific parts of the prospectus.
