Earlier today, October 1, 2012, the New York Mercantile Exchange, Inc. (NYMEX or Exchange) delisted contract days through October 19, 2012, for the Daily European Union Allowance (EUA) futures contract (commodity code EUL, chapter 1260). The delisted contract days had no open interest.
This action was taken due to the implementation of upgrades to the EU Emissions Trading Scheme’s Union Registry. Starting on September 27, 2012 at 4:00 p.m. Central European Summer Time (“CEST”), operations of the Union Registry were partially suspended. Registry users will continue to have access to their registry accounts but it will not be possible to initiate transfers or modify personal details. Additionally, access to the Union Registry and its registry accounts will be completely suspended until October 2, 2012. The Union Registry will resume full operation on October 2, 2012.
