Four exchanges and four brokers ’go-live’ with new EFETnet electronic clearing registration services


31 Aug 2012



EFETnet announces the ‘go-live’ of a new electronic service for OTC and ‘off-exchange’ trade clearing registration, an implementation of the EFET open standard for clearing registration: “electronic eXchange Related Processing” (eXRP).

The service goes live on 31st August 2012, in partnership with APX-ENDEX, European Energy Exchange (EEX), NOS Clearing ASA (a NASDAQ OMX company), OMIP, GFI Group, ICAP, Marex Spectron and Tullett Prebon. These companies are now electronically connected together, hence ensuring that all cleared and clearable trades executed on their electronic platforms are directly registered into the appropriate clearing service safely and securely.

An on-line portal for real-time monitoring of the registration process is provided by the EFETnet CMS platform enabling all participants including the traders to maintain an up- to-date view of their cleared transactions.

The eXRP process has been developed by the market participants coordinated by EFET in response to market trends and in anticipation of regulatory requirements for increased usage of clearing services. An open standard for connecting market participants is seen as essential in ensuring non-proprietary access to clearing services at minimum cost to the industry.

eXRP establishes a single standard connection between execution and clearing venues allowing new joiners to connect easily. Several new participants are expected to join the service over the coming months.
