CME Clearing Europe maintains and routinely tests a comprehensive disaster recovery and business continuity plan, which is closely aligned with that of CME Group and CME Clearing in the US.
The disaster recovery and business continuity plan is designed to provide protection against a broad spectrum of physical disasters and to guarantee the continuity of core trading and clearing functions whatever the circumstances. Key components include:
The plan provides continuity even if CME Clearing Europe's primary facilities in London were to be destroyed.
Scenarios tested routinely include the completion of the daily clearing cycle on the day of such an event and the resumption of normal clearing processing on the following business day.
