    Fee Settlement

    ECC provides fee settlement for its Partner Exchanges. This means that ECC collects the fees on behalf of exchanges from the participants via their Clearing or Settlement Bank and the invoices are issued by the Partner Exchanges themselves.

    In addition, the invoicing service is also available. In this case, ECC generates the invoice for each exchange trading participant on behalf and for the account of the exchange. This service includes the collection of the fees and dispatching of the invoices.

    The fee settlement service is used by EEX, EPEX SPOT, NOREXECO and SEMOPX.
