    • Currently CME Clearing provides clearing firms and service providers with VPS printing capability to directly forward clearing report packets to their back office printers via Document Direct. This process known as VPS printing will be phased out as part of the migration from Document Direct to the EREP reporting application.  As a result, CME Clearing will no longer support VPS printing functionality effective June 24, 2011.


      Alternatively, CME Clearing currently provides an enhanced option to send firm report packets via an automated FTP process.  This process will also provide firms the ability to archive all report data received.  Additionally, EREP also enables firm users to send their reports to their default printer.


      To start receiving your clearing reports via FTP, please contact our CME Clearing Services CCS group to begin the transition from VPS Printing to FTP. 

      If there are any questions, please contact the CCS at (312) 207-2525 or via email at ccs@cmegroup.com
