    • As previously stated in Clearing House Advisory 12-225, dated May 29, 2012, the European Commission announced the full activation of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme single registry and the Union Registry transition period for the migration of accounts from national registries into a Union Registry.  The Union Registry transition period is scheduled for the period beginning June 3, 2012 through June 20, 2012.

      Although, the single registry is scheduled to be activated on June 20, the single registry will not contain all the required functionalities at that time.  Moreover, transactions through the registry will be subject to a 26-hour delay.  That delay will not be applicable to new account types (Trading Accounts) if they are included in a list of “trusted accounts”.  According to the Union Registry, a full timetable will be communicated by July 15 with final date of implementation of delivery procedures scheduled for mid-September 2012.

      Consequently, effective immediately, GreenX will delist the September 2012 contract month for its EUA, CER and ERU contracts.  In addition, the Daily EUA contracts will remain delisted through contract day September 28, 2012.  The contracts which will be delisted in accordance with the table below have no open interest.

      These actions do not affect trading in any other futures or options products listed on CME Group.
