Mandatory PIN procedure for Trading on Behalf and other inquiries
As part of the T7 Release 8.1 Eurex introduced the mandatory user attribute PINCode on 3 August 2020. This mandatory PIN authentication procedure applies for Trading on Behalf (ToB) and further inquiries and aims to improve the identification of requesting Exchange Participants. Newly set up Eurex users will thus require a dedicated PINCode upon T7 Release 8.1. Those Eurex user set ups that have been performed prior to T7 Release 8.1 are valid without the PINCode only until the mandatory PIN procedure is enforced.
Eurex Market Supervision enforced the mandatory PIN identification process starting Monday, 3 August 2020. All Eurex users are required to have a dedicated PIN and every requesting Exchange Participant must provide the PIN to Eurex Market Supervision for:
In case the required authentication information is not provided effective Monday, 3 August 2020, Eurex Market Supervision will reject above mentioned inquiries. Therefore, it is crucial that all Eurex users should be aware of their PIN and know where to find it.
Please also keep in mind that all Eurex Exchange Participants are asked to review their internal escalation and compliance processes to incorporate potential changes to adhere to the new identification process due to the mandatory PIN procedure. Eurex user administrators should set up PINs for all Eurex users and directly communicate those to the individual traders in alignment with the internal departments and processes of the Exchange Participant.
