All Members/Participants,


This is in continuation to Indian Clearing Corporation Ltd (ICCL) circular no   20221115-57 dated November 15, 2022, circular no 20221007-23 dated October 07, 2022, circular no. 20220603-61, dated June 03, 2022 & circular no. 20220609-40 dated June 09, 2022 regarding Standardization of Clearing and Settlement file formats. As per recommendations of SEBI’s Market Data Advisory Committee (MDAC) regarding “Standardization of MII-Member Interface”, it was proposed to standardise the formats of end of day files across applicable Clearing Corporation. The format of these files should be common across all applicable clearing corporations, as part of the continued efforts to enhance the interface between CCs and Members.

In this regard, the new standardized file formats in Capital Market, SLB scheme, Futures and Options, Currency Derivatives and Commodity Derivatives segments have been made available. Clearing Corporations have received feedback from Market participants and back-office vendors to include the ISO tags as headers in the new standardized files. The same has been considered, taken up for development and shall be released accordingly in due course of time. Further the file nomenclatures have been harmonized across clearing corporations. CC indicator (ICCL) shall be appended to harmonized file nomenclature for differentiations. File format details attached as Annexure.

Clearing corporations shall start download of such files from 02-January-2023. There both the old (existing) and revised standardized formats files shall be made available till March 31, 2023. Effective April 3, 2023, only the revised standardized files shall only be downloaded to members and the old files shall be discontinued.

Market participants are advised to take note of the same and initiate necessary changes in their systems.
