Following EuroCCP’s newsflash dated 28 March 2018 regarding the migration of Danish Kroner denominated settlement activity to T2S, the TARGET2 Securities platform, EuroCCP wishes to remind Clearing Participants of the forthcoming changes to EuroCCP’s Standard Settlement Instructions (SSIs), Client testing requirements and the EuroCCP T2S migration plan.
Standard Settlement Instructions Danish market
With the migration of Danish Kroner denominated securities, settlement arrangements and SSIs for Clearing Participants and EuroCCP’s will change. EuroCCP will contact those Clearing Participants that are active on Danish market to obtain new SSIs for the production environment via the EuroCCP Denmark Information Form, which should be completed and signed and returned to EuroCCP as soon as possible.
The new EuroCCP SSIs, detailed below, will apply from settlement date Monday 29 October 2018 following the successful migration weekend:-
EuroCCP SSIs VP Securities:
|Delivery / Receiving party BIC (DEAG / REAG)||EMCFNL2AXXX|
|CSD of Delivering / Receiving party (PSET)||VPDKDKKKXXX|
All settlement instructions in which EuroCCP is a counterparty will settle on the T2S platform, Clearing Participants must have undertaken the necessary actions to ensure that the correct account structure is arranged with VP Securities which allows them to settle the CCP related activity within a T2S securities account.
Client testing T2S mode for Danish market
EuroCCP’s client test environment is currently in T2S mode for the Danish market and available for client testing. Clearing Participants and their settlement agents are advised to undertake testing in accordance with VP Securities’ T2S requirements.
In order to support testing, Clearing Participants must provide their SSIs to EuroCCP before testing starts in T2S mode.
Clearing Participants using the settlement agent PoA process, should instruct their settlement agent to process the SWIFT MT54X messages received.
