In Exchange and Clearing Information no 78/13 NASDAQ OMX Commodities informed about the upcoming amendments to how trades executed outside the Electronic order book shall be reported to the Exchange/Clearinghouse from December 2, 2013 (subject to regulatory approval).
The Trade Reporting Service Description that was attached to the Exchange and Clearing Information no 78/13 deliberately did not clarify certain technical impacts of the amendments. A complete version of the Trade Reporting Service Description explaining the technical adjustments has now been created and can be found attached.
Note that for existing Commodities products (Nordic Power, German Power, Dutch Power, Electricity Certificates, UK Gas, UK Power, Allowances) only minor change to the description of the transaction types has been made whereas for the products migrated from NOS Clearing ASA (Freight, Fuel Oil and Iron Ore) new trade reporting types will be introduced.
Broker Appointment Form and OTC Representative Authorization Form
As informed in Exchange and Clearing Information no 78/13 the existing Broker Appointment arrangements will by default be transferred (technically and legally) and applicable for Block Transactions and EFS/EFP Transactions assuming the appointed Broker becomes an approved Block Broker Member. A similar principle will apply to the OTC Representative Authorization Form.
This arrangement will also by default be transferred (technically and legally) and applicable for Block Transactions and EFS/EFP Transactions assuming the Account Holder holds an Exchange Membership. The existing OTC Representative Authorization Form will continue to be valid after December 2. However, Members will not be able to enter into new OTC Representative Authorization Form from December 2. The Broker Appointment Form shall be used for that purpose.
Members who want to amend the existing Broker Appointment Form or the OTC Representative Authorization Form shall notify NASDAQ OMX in writing no later than November 8.
