Overview of functional enhancement:

Nominated Person 

With this release, Trading Participants will be able to register the Nominated Person in eXas via the Member Section. The new digital service has been designed to: 

  • provide transparency throughout the registration process 
  • streamline processes and
  • accelerate processing and reduce Trading Participants' effort  

Only members of the Executive Board can be registered as Nominated Person. The digital process ensures this by only offering to select a person who has been registered as a member of the Executive Board during the regular KYC reviews.

Please note that only the Central Coordinator or the Admission Administrator can start the registration process on behalf of the Nominated Person in the Member Section under the following path: Trading&Clearing Administration > Application Administration > Apply on behalf > Nominated Person. 

Starting 7 December 2022, clients have the possibility to either use the paper-based registration or the digital solution via eXas. After the transition period, starting 1 February 2023, the registration of Nominated Persons will only be possible via eXas. 

In case of any questions, please contact your Key Account Manager or send an e-mail to:
