1. Readiness Statement

We would like to make you aware of the mandatory feedback that we kindly request from you prior to the introduction of T7 Release 8.0 for Börse Frankfurt and Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate. Please submit the "Readiness Statement" for the go-live of T7 Release 8.0 for Börse Frankfurt and Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate before production start.

We kindly ask all Trading Participants to return the Readiness Statement by Friday, 28 February 2020 at the latest. The Readiness Statement can be found under this link.

We would also like to remind you to participate in the pre-production (ongoing), the simulation environment (as of 17 February 2020), and the connection test to assure a smooth transition.

2. Interface documentation updates

As previously announced in Cash Market Readiness Newsflash from 27 November 2019, updates to the interface documentation for Börse Frankfurt migration are envisaged for mid/end January 2020. We would now like to inform Members that updates to the T7 Release 8.0 production version of the Enhanced Trading Interface (ETI) specification, XML representation and the schema files have now been published on the Xetra website www.xetra.com under the following link:

The exact details of the changes which have been implemented with the updated version of the interface (V8.0.1), and which are relevant for the Börse Frankfurt migration only, can be found in the change log on page 329. Full backwards compatibility for both cash and derivatives markets, ETI clients implementing interface version v8.0 is provided, and therefore no further action for these clients is required. The updated version of the software will be applied to the T7 Release 8.0 Pre-Production and T7 Release 8.0 Simulation environment from 31 January 2020 onwards. 

Please note that no further changes have been made neither to the T7 Release 8.0 Market and Reference Data interfaces nor to the T7 Release 8.0 FIX Gateway interface.     

3. Reporting handbook update

Due to the migration of Börse Frankfurt and Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate, the document “Information handbook for audit trail, reportings and other regulatory reporting under the MiFID II/MiFIR regime” was updated. All references to the Xetra Classic trading system were removed.
