Organised Market Places such as EEX are obligated to provide a data reporting agreement undertaking to report data that arose from their platform on behalf of market participants. However, in most cases there is a great deal of benefit in market participants routing all of their data to one place, so that reporting can be more easily managed.
The announced service allows users to elect to have EEX send all such data to REGIS-TR in their capacity as a REMIT RRM (registered reporting mechanism). REGIS TR will act as a “full RRM” for REMIT, i.e. they will accept any type of data from a variety of sources for forwarding to ACER under REMIT. This arrangement allows them to acquire the data directly from EEX on behalf of a market participant. Since REGIS TR are also an EMIR Trade Repository, it will be possible to use their facilities to meet a wider range of regulatory data reporting requirements.
