Eurex Exchange Readiness Newsflash | Mandatory PIN procedure for Trading on Behalf (ToB) and for further inquiries

Dear Eurex Participant,

We would like to remind you about the mandatory PIN procedure for Trading on Behalf (ToB) and for further inquiries.

In August 2020, Eurex introduced a mandatory PIN authentication procedure for ToB and further inquiries in order to improve the identification procedure of the requesting Exchange Participant. 

Eurex Market Supervision enforces the mandatory PIN identification process, thereby requiring all Eurex users to have a dedicated PIN which needs to be provided for the following requests:

  • On-exchange on-behalf entries (order add / modify / delete / mass deletion)
  • TES on-behalf entries (trade add / approve / modify / delete)
  • Stop / Release User / Business Unit inquiries

All Exchange Participants must be aware that Eurex Market Supervision rejects such inquiries in case required authentication information is not provided since Monday, 3 August 2020.

Where do I find my PIN?

When logged in into the T7 GUI, the PINCode of a Eurex user can be displayed on the T7 “Eurex Trader Login” GUI window. The Eurex trading user can also inquire his/her PIN via the T7 Trader GUI any time via the login/logout screen. The PINCode of individual users is visible for the T7 admin user via the T7 Admin GUI in the T7 “User Maintenance” GUI window. As Trading on Behalf applies when you experience technical difficulties, it is possible that at this time the GUI is not available. Therefore, we recommend that you safely store the PIN also outside the GUI.

For details on the PIN initiative and details on who can change a PIN, please refer to the original circular 025/20 which is located on the Eurex website www.eurex.com under the following path: Find > Circulars & Mailings

If you have questions or require further information, please contact us via e-mail: client.services@eurex.com.

Kind regards
