Reporting by Eurex Clearing according to Article 9 EU Regulation No. 648/2012 (EMIR): Updated version 2.6 of the Member Information available

Eurex Clearing Circular 098/20 Reporting by Eurex Clearing according to Article 9 EU Regulation No. 648/2012 (EMIR): Updated version 2.6 of the Member Information available


1. Introduction

According to Article 9 EMIR (European Market Infrastructure Regulation), both Eurex Clearing and its Clearing Members are obliged to report transactions in exchange-traded, off-book and OTC derivatives since 12 February 2014. Also, collateral and valuation reports must be submitted since 12 August 2014.

As both counterparties of a derivative trade must report and common data must be identical, it is important that the CCP and its Clearing Members use the same methods to populate common data fields.

After successful implementing major changes with the last release in August 2020 to improve pairing and matching rates, the current release will focus on minor fixes regarding price, price notation and deliverable currencies (chapter 13.3 of the Member Information attached), the introduction of ECAG’s Non-Deliverable-Forwards (NDF) products which are subject to regulatory approval, as well as some editorial changes. 

Production start: 23 November 2020

In addition, Eurex Clearing will adopt the new validation rules by Regis-TR for modifications (fields “compression” and “venue”) already into the Member Information, which will become effective on 14 December 2020.

2. Required action

Members are asked to read the new version 2.6 of the Member Information, which contains the most recent version of ECAG’s EMIR reporting logic.

3. Details of the initiative

The attachment “Member Information - Reporting by Eurex Clearing according to EMIR Article 9”, version 2.6 describes how Eurex Clearing reports derivative transactions according to EMIR in order to enable Clearing Members and other reporting participants to align the reporting. Changes to the prior version are highlighted. 

EMIR reporting is still subject to further guidance by ESMA. In case of changes to the proposed EMIR reporting methods, Eurex Clearing will provide updated documentation via further Eurex Clearing circulars. 

The updated version 2.6 has also been made available for download in the Member Section of the Eurex Clearing website www.eurex.com/ec-en/ under the following path:
