C7 is the state-of-the-art Clearing Platform of Deutsche Börse Group and has – since its introduction for EUREX Clearing AG (ECAG) in 2013 – been significantly extended and improved to serve customers across various markets with highly reliable solutions.
ECC and its members have been using C7 since the migration of Collateral Management Services in December 2017 and the migration of Advanced Risk Protection Services in December 2018. The migration of Position & Transaction Management services in August 2019 marks the final step of moving customer facing services to the new platform.

ECC provides a complete overview of trades and positions, margin requirements, payments and deliveries for each product and member.
Furthermore, Clearing Members receive comprehensive information on risk and collateral. Some of the risk reports are even delivered every few minutes to help you to closely monitor the current risk situation.
Clearing processes take place on two back-ends: the SMSS back-end and the Eurex back-end. For this reason, there are differences in reporting between spot market transactions and derivatives transactions.
