    • This advisory updates and replaces Clearing Advisory 14-087, originally published on March 3, 2014.

      UPDATE #1: July 23, 2014 (ORIGINAL DATE March 27th, 2014)

      Some clearing firms have indicated that they may not be able to meet the October 6 deadline for submission of the additional client master data. If so, please contact MarginAccts@cmegroup.com to request an extension.

      Note that work now being done for Ownership & Control Reporting (OCR) may be leveraged to support this requirement. Applications that are used for OCR may be enhanced to support this reporting, and the files may be transmitted to CME directly from such applications exactly as they may be transmitted by any other vendor to CME member firms.

      There are minor changes to the structure of the FIXML Margin Accounts Master file described below, implemented at the request of the FIX standards committee.

      For futures accounts, although firms may elect to include the data either in the CGM transmission or the separate Margin Accounts Master file, we recommend the use of the Margin Accounts Master file. Similarly, for swaps accounts, we recommend the use of the Margin Accounts Master file, rather than inclusion of the additional data in the LSOC CVR files.
