The licensing process is two steps:

Step 1

The software will include a suite of sample portfolio files and a complete risk data set that can be used for testing during the trial period.  

Step 2

  • CME will provide full license agreement to customers following receipt of the agreements from Step 1
  • Market participants that decide to license the software during the trial period will return the fully executed agreement 
    • Agreements must be finalized within 60 day trial period to avoid disruption to using the software
