1. Introduction

This circular contains information with respect to the service offering of Eurex Clearing AG (Eurex Clearing) and introduces amendments to the GTC to the Connection Agreement and to the CA Price List regarding the following topic:

  • Amendments to the GTC to the Connection Agreement and to the CA Price List due to the Decommissioning of ERS 

The amendments will become effective as of 8 June 2020.

2. Required action

There is no action required for the participants.

3. Details

The Enhanced Risk Solution (“ERS”) was introduced in 2010 to provide our customers with direct access to the risk monitoring for all markets. ERS was designed to provide margin information based on our old methodology Risk Based Margining.

Therefore, after the introduction of Portfolio Based Margining (PRISMA) and the completion of migration for all derivatives products to PRISMA, the provided information via ERS got limited. ERS will be decommissioned with the production start of Prisma Release 9.2 on 8 June 2020 (announced on 2 October 2019 in the respective Newsflash on Prisma Releases 9.0/9.1/9.2).

A.    Amendments to the GTC to the Connection Agreement and to the CA Price List

In the frame of decommissioning of ERS, the General Terms and Conditions to the Agreement on Technical Connection to the Clearing EDP of Eurex Clearing AG (“GTC to the Connection Agreement”) and the Price List to the Agreement on Technical Connection to the Clearing EDP of Eurex Clearing AG (“CA Price List”) need to be amended accordingly.

To reflect the changes, the following provisions will be amended as outlined in Attachment 1:

  • §§ 4, 5 of the GTC to the Connection Agreement 
  • § 2 of the CA Price List

To the extent Eurex Clearing has entered into the Connection Agreement with customers where the provision of the ERS is Eurex Clearing’s main contractual obligation under the Connection Agreement, this amendment notice shall also serve as a termination of the respective Connection Agreements to the end of May 2020, that is subject to the condition that the amendments as outlined above are not accepted by the respective customers. 

As of the effective date, the full version of the amended GTC to the Connection Agreement and the CA Price List of Eurex Clearing AG will be available for download on the Eurex Clearing website www.eurexclearing.com under the following link:
