Testing and Certification Information

To ensure preparedness ahead of the decommission of ENCORE and launch of the new clearing platform, OCC plans to begin industrywide testing in the second quarter of 2023.

Certification will be required for all market participants. Connectivity set up will begin directly before industrywide testing. 

Additional information will soon become available with the release of various technical documentation in the third quarter of 2022.
