Delivery instructions


Delivery instructions can be sent out as released (default) or on hold on the same level of netting parameters.

Net Position Trade

For every Net Position Trade, a delivery instruction is sent to the respective settlement location (CBF/T2S, CBL and SIX SIS) already on the trading day.

Please check the delivery instructions on (I) CSD (Central Securities Depository) side.

Processing method


For the processing method Clearing Members have the following setting choice: Netting (default), Aggregation or Gross Processing.

Prepare and execute the test scenarios for processing methods.

C7 SCS Processing results

At the end of the trading day, netting, aggregation or gross processing is performed combining single trades to Net Position Trades depending on the processing method.

Please check if the end of day netted positions corresponds to the trading activities of the day.

Net Clearing Report

A Net Clearing Report is provided on the end of each trading day containing single trades, resulting Net Position Trades and delivery instructions.
