Please be aware of the following 4 upcoming changes to CME European Trade Repository.
1. ‘NonEEACounterParty’ Mandatory submission:
Later this month, CME ETR will be making a change to the validation of trade and position records submitted for EMIR reporting. Implementation dates for this change are:
||18th June 2014
||27th June 2014
This change relates specifically to the field NonEEACounterParty (CounterParty Data field 14) which has previously been an optional field on submissions. Going forward, it will be mandatory to populate this field with one of the three following values:
Y - The other counterparty is located outside the EEA;
N - The other counterparty is located inside the EEA ;
U - The location of the other counterparty is unknown (for example, where trading is conducted anonymously).
Records which do not contain one of these three values will be rejected from the ETR and will need to be updated before re-submission.
Firms which have already been submitted records to the ETR which did not have this field populated may wish to update these in due course so that they contain the correct population of this field.
CME ETR has decided to make this change in light of ongoing discussions with ESMA regarding their increasing focus on data quality and the functioning of the Inter-TR reconciliation, of which this field is a key constituent.
Delegated Reporting Considerations
CME Group’s delegated reporting service for clearing members and clients of CME cleared markets has automatically included the submission of this field since the reporting start date on 12th February 2014, therefore no action is required from delegated reporting service users to manage this change.
2. Direct reporting UTI generation service:
As per CME ETR advisory 30th May, CME ETR will discontinue the automatic creation of UTIs where clients submit trades without a UTI directly to the ETR. This will be effective from 27th June 2014. Beyond this date any trades submitted directly to the CME ETR without a UTI will be rejected.
Delegated Reporting Considerations
CME Group’s delegated reporting service for clearing members and clients of CME cleared markets will continue to automatically create UTIs at the clearing house level and report these to the CME ETR. No action is required from delegated reporting service users to manage this change.
3. Disaster Recovery sftp change:
Please be informed that CME Clearing will decommission legacy DR SFTP Saturday, June21, 2014 as CME DR site was migrated to another location.
This impact firms who currently utilize the legacy DR SFTP for production. See below details of this change to help you determine its impact and actions required on your side:
Firms that connect to SFTP via WAN:
-Remove old server IP address: 220.127.116.11
-Replace with current primary IP address: 18.104.22.168
Firms that connect via Web: sftpng.cmegroup.com (only customers who added IP in their firewall)
-Remove old 22.214.171.124
-Replace with 126.96.36.199
Please note: In case of a CME DR situation, the failover will not require firms to switch their SFTP access or manage additional entries to their firewall.
4. Inter TR Reconciliation Report:
From 27th May CME ETR only provides details of un-reconciled trades to clients by email only. The reconciliation report in the CME ETR UI has temporarily been suspended.
