T2S Release 6.2 Status Update No. 2 – Completion of CBF End of Day processing, Friday, 18 November 2022


Clearstream Banking AG (CBF) informs customers that the CBF business day 18 November 2022 will be closed today,  at around 21:00, and the End of Day (EoD) reporting will be prepared for distribution to customers.

Clearstream will close its connectivity interface (T2S-I) to T2S while executing deployment activities. However, CBF’s automated connectivity channels will be open for customers. This means, that all successfully transmitted instructions will be on hold on the connectivity layer. This timeline is also valid for customers using ClearstreamXact via SWIFT, MQ or File Transfer. That is, instructions will be queued from Friday, 18 November 2022, 22:00, to Sunday, 20 November 2022, at around 06:00.

Customers transmitting instructions via SWIFT will receive an acknowledgement upon receipt of the instruction and the existing message subscription. The CBF Business Validation Feedback will be provided once all implementation activities are completed in CBF, and the instructions will be transmitted to T2S.

CBF recommends customers acting in ICP mode to transmit their instructions once the CBF maintenance window is completed and the regular processing with the T2S platform has started. According to the latest transition plan, this point will be achieved on Monday, 21 November 2022, at around 01:30.

The next Operational News for T2S Release 6.2 is scheduled for today at 20:00.
