SMSS XML Report Specification

    The SMSS XML Report Specification contains the description of the XML reports generated by the ECC Spot Market Settlement System (SMSS).

    ECC has introduced the SMSS to implement uniform processes, reports and interfaces for the settlement of Spot Market transactions and for deliveries from Derivatives Market transactions settled physically regardless of the underlying and of the trading platform.

    Various reports can be subscribed to in the XML and PDF format (spot trades / payments / deliveries / invoices / margin) and to export historical transactions via the Member Area of the ECC website.
