    Please pay special attention to Article 9.

    ECC EMIR Data Services

    ECC offers Clearing Members and Non-Clearing Members a service whereby they can delegate their reporting obligations to ECC. This means that members can significantly reduce their reporting efforts for all derivatives trades cleared by ECC.

    Members can directly access their reported data via a web-based solution and download it from a SFTP in the way it is reported to Regis-TR, an approved trade repository under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation.

    The data access via the Web Client allows delegating customers to:

    • track the status of the reporting process
    • monitor the successful completion of the reporting process at the end of the day following the conclusion of a transaction at any of ECC’s partner exchanges
    • look into any of the reported data sets for further details.

    Beyond the provision of the XML files reported to Regis-TR, ECC will also deliver Regis-TR’s data acknowledgements onto the SFTP for further download.

    Our EMIR Data Services include:

    • Trade and position reporting for Financial (FC) and Non-Financial Counterparties (NFC)
    • Exposure reporting for Clearing Members
    • Provision of data files for individual downloading
    • Reporting to the trade repository REGIS-TR
    • Web Clients to monitor status of reported data

    Counterparties can choose between a basic service that provides data files and additional service (full delegation service) that includes the data submission to REGIS-TR.

    ECC EMIR Basic Service

    Through the EMIR Basic Service, ECC’s Clearing and Non-Clearing Members can easily access, and check their data. Counterparties can easily download the data files and forward them to REGIS-TR or any other trade repository.

    The advantages of our EMIR Basic Service are:

    • Easy access via SFTP
    • EMIR data files for individual download
    • Provision on the working day following the conclusion of a contract
    • Opportunity to adapt files to fulfill individual reporting requirements
    • Files can be used as input data for reporting to a trade repository of your choice

    EMIR Basic Service Files for CMs

    As with the Non-Clearing Members ECC EMIR Basic Service, the Clearing Members' own EMIR messages are generated and stored on the SFTP server. These reports include the transactions, positions, valuation updates and collateral updates of the respective Clearing Member for the trades cleared by ECC.

    As with the EMIR Basic Service, these reports are created from the perspective of the Clearing Member, so that direct forwarding to the Trade Repository Regis-TR is possible. To use another trade repository, the reports must be supplemented with the other trade repository details.

    These Basic Service Files for Clearing Members are free of charge and are intended to be used for direct reporting to the Trade Repository or for comparing and adapting the own EMIR reports so that there are no deviations at the regulatory level. This is intended to avoid a high level of reconciliation effort on both sides (CCP & CM).

    EMIR Additional Service

    Counterparties who wish to benefit from the highest standard of automation favour the EMIR Additional Service. This service is an add-on to the EMIR Basic Service. All data is not only available as downloadable files, but is additionally reported directly to REGIS-TR.

    The ECC EMIR Additional Service for Non-Clearing Member is only available when their Clearing Member also uses the ECC EMIR Additional Service.

    Clearing Members can only use the ECC EMIR Additional Service in combination with an own account at our Trade Repository Regis-TR.

    The advantages of our EMIR Additional Service are:

    • Transfer of EMIR data files to REGIS-TR on behalf of the delegating Counterparty in a complete, accurate and timely manner
    • Reported EMIR Data and REGIS-TR message responses are provided on SFTP server
    • Web Client to monitor and download reported EMIR data and REGIS-TR message responses

    EMIR Harmonized File

    In addition to the complete EMIR data files ECC offers the Harmonized File, which simplifies the reconciliation and matching process between the CCP and the CM according to Article 9 EMIR.

    The advantages of our EMIR Harmonized File are:

    • Easy access via SFTP server
    • Individual download of Harmonized Files
    • Provision on the working day following the conclusion of a contract
    • Improving data quality and reducing discrepancies between the ECC and the Clearing Members with regard to UTI use and filling of some matching-relevant fields
    • The Harmonized File is free of charge

    The Harmonized File does not contain all EMIR-relevant reporting data and therefore cannot be sent to the Trade Repository as an EMIR report according to Article 9 EMIR.

    For questions relating to trade reporting under EMIR and the ECC offering for delegating the reporting please contact our team Reporting Services.

    EMIR Data Services under EMIR Refit

    With the extensive adjustment of the EMIR reporting system under EMIR Refit, the previous reporting system will be restructured and supplemented with further information. The goal of uniform reporting by the counterparties is also the claim that ECC represents. 

    By making the EMIR Basic Service Files available to the Clearing Members free of charge and the EMIR Harmonized Files, we are getting closer to this goal.

    We also provide further information about the implementation of EMIR Refit in the download section.
