2. Required action/requirements for participation
Market participants, who have not yet achieved readiness for the launch of the NextGen ETD initiative, are requested to continue with their preparations. Market participants are reminded to ensure that the impact on their end clients – if any – has been analysed and considered by their end clients and that all reasonable efforts have been taken to ensure readiness of the end clients for the introduction of NextGen ETD Contracts.
Depending on the chosen implementation approach of vendors, Clearing Members and Trading Participants, the impact of required NextGen ETD changes may differ and even reach beyond the three business initiatives. Therefore, it is of high importance for all market participants including end clients to verify and understand their individual impact.
