EuroCCP is pleased to advise you of the recent developments with the request for a trade feed from Oslo Børs.
Following the request in December 2017, in accordance with the provisions of MiFIR article 36, Oslo Børs has now provided an update to its market participants, as follows:-.
- Oslo Børs has acknowledged EuroCCP’s access request.
- Although the access request has yet to be formally approved, EuroCCP will have access to the Oslo Børs test environment from February 2018, and clearing participants will be advised of test dates as soon as the testing environment is available.
- Following formal approval, a go-live is expected during Q2 2018.
Since its inception, EuroCCP has been an advocate of open access for the benefit of clearing and trading participants alike. In addition, further requests for trade feed access have been submitted to other exchanges.
With the introduction of competition in these markets, clearing services will become more efficient whilst reducing post trade costs, as evidenced in those markets which already offer competitive clearing arrangements.
