    • If you currently transact or broker Block Trades or Exchange of Futures for Related Positions (EFRPs), please contact your Exchange Clearing Member Firm or broker to ensure that you are ready for the planned migration of Block Trade and EFRP trade submission to CME Direct or CME ClearPort.  Confirm your accounts are registered in CME Direct or CME ClearPort, credit limits are established and you or your clients have appropriate product permissions in place. Additionally, all brokers that execute on your behalf must be enabled with access to your account(s).  CME Direct and CME ClearPort currently support submission of all Block Trades and EFRPs, and we strongly encourage you to migrate your trade activity well in advance of the deadline.
