Eurex Clearing Readiness Newsflash

Dear Members,

Our next major C7 Release is fast approaching. On 8 May 2019, Eurex Clearing announced the introduction of the C7 Release 6.0:

Simulation start: 16 September 2019 

Production start: 18 November 2019

As Brexit is looming around the corner, we will focus on a staggered approach to ensure system stability, with the overall decommissioning of Eurex Classic being extended to 13 January 2020. This will result in some windows being available in Eurex Classic as well as C7 in parallel.

Please note that the due date for Brexit related set-ups will remain as communicated.

Please bear in mind that the product groups from Eurex Classic will be migrated to C7 and will be available in production on 18 November 2019

We kindly ask all Clearing Members to review the Capacity/Product Assignment and advice to conclude the maintenance activity on 11 to 15 November 2019 prior to production start on C7.  


Being a 1:1 migration, all products will be assigned to their respective Disclosed Direct Clients based on the Clearing/Trading License. Clearing Members can download the data from Eurex Classic. We will also extend the Capacity/Product Assignment in simulation.   

The detailed timeline regarding the activation of windows/functionalities in simulation and production will be included in the updated C7 Release 6.0 “Release Notes” that will be published latest by next week.

Please note that the following documents have been updated today on the Eurex Clearing website under the following path:

  • Eurex Clearing XML Reports - Reference Manual v. 6.0.0.
  • Eurex Clearing XML Reports - Modification Notes v. 6.0.0.
  • Eurex Clearing  XML Reports - XML Schema Files v. 6.0.0.
  • C7 - Eurex Clearing FIXML Interface Specifications (Vol. 3; 4; 5 ;6)
  • C7 - Eurex Clearing FIXML Interface - Schema Files

Please note that we anticipate the C7 – User Entitlement Guide to be published in September 2019. We apologise for any inconvenience. All other documents will be available as communicated in the Communication calendar.   

The readiness statement for the production exercise will be shared on 21 October 2019. We will also include a Help section in the C7 GUI for all new functionalities introduced.
