The Code of Conduct is designed to improve access to clearing and settlement organisations
and central securities depositories, and enhance interoperability.
SIX Swiss Exchange facilitates access and interoperability
The three aforementioned industry associations drew up the Code's Access and
Interoperability Guidelines and delivered these to the EU Commission ahead of 30 June
2007. SIX Swiss Exchange has since acted in accordance with the Access and Interoperability
Guidelines and is fully supportive of the aims of the Code.
SIX Swiss Exchange uses SIX x-clear, LCH Ltd and EuroCCP as central counterparties within an open
architekture. This service is flexible and can also be extended to other CCP providers.
