2. Required action
Functions, services, and technical changes to be introduced with this release might have an impact on the internal processes of Clearing Members, FCM Clearing Members and their clients who clear EurexOTC Clear products (hereafter: EurexOTC Clear Members). Eurex Clearing notes that OTC Clear Release 12.1 is a minor release and will have a limited impact for EurexOTC Clear Members.
Therefore, it might be necessary for EurexOTC Clear Members to update their internal processes and technical interfaces (e.g. XSDs for EurexOTC Clear Reports, Eurex Clearing FpML Interface).
In order to improve the quality of the OTC simulation environment in advance of its upcoming release, Eurex Clearing will perform a structured clean-up of old trades in the simulation environment on Monday, 31 January 2022. Therefore, all trades captured before Wednesday, 3 January 2022 will no longer be available in the simulation environment.
