Getting Started

Welcome to the AutoCert+ Access online help system.

CME Group requires that all client systems transacting on CME Globex via iLink order routing or processing CME Group market data are certified by AutoCert+, an automated testing tool for validating client system functionality. CME Group offers two customer testing environments, Certification and New Release, for system validation prior to connecting to and transacting on CME Group platforms. Certification ensures messaging and processing reliability and the capability to gracefully recover during abnormal message processing events.
