As result of a regular parameter review, ECC adjusts the parameters for the Initial Margin Spot Market (IMSM) and Current Exposure Spot Market (CESM) as of 01 February 2023 as follows:
Sell Margin Parameter OTE Czech Natural Gas
Sell Margin Parameter PVB Natural Gas
Sell Margin Parameter UK Power
All other margin parameters remain unchanged.
The new value for the margin parameter applied on net sell amount of the Exposure for the Initial Margin Spot Market (IMSM) as well as of the Current Exposure Spot Market (CESM) will be used for the first time in the IMSM calculation on 01 February 2023 coming into effect for CESM at the same day and for IMSM at the following day 02 February 2023.1
The corresponding parameter in ECC’s risk parameter file on the ECC website will be updated on 01 February 2023.
For assistance, please contact email@example.com. Clearing Members are reminded to check whether defined Emergency Member Stop Limits and deposited collaterals are set sufficiently to cover a possible margin increase.
