Amendments to the Clearing Rules - Changes to the Buy-In Process
Oslo Clearing has decided to amend its Buy-In procedures partly to reflect the requirements set out in the EU short Selling Regulation (SSR), as from the 1 November 2012. Oslo Clearing will until further notice maintain the member Buy-In process, however Buy-In requests may now be submitted from ISD+4. Oslo Clearing has further made amendments to the fail charges levels in order to adapt to the SSR.

Service Description MagiCa
The Service Description for Equities, Derivatives and Loans is updated to reflect the new improved clearing services with the MagiCa project.
The Service Description is intended to provide the clearing members with an overview of the clearing services provided by Oslo Clearing ASA.
The description shall be used for explanatory purposes only and is not a legal document.
Midas Margin Methodology
The MagiCa project uses the Midas Margin Model when calculating margins. The margin model is developed by Oslo Clearing and will replace the methodologies that currently are in use, both in the derivative segment and in the equity segment.
The Margin Methodology document is a detailed document which accounts for the methods and assumptions that are used in the Midas Margin model.
The project MagiCa establishes a common clearing and margin model for all of Oslo Clearing product segments. The current two rulebooks have been merged to one common rulebook and shall be effective from 21 September 2012 or on such later date as Oslo Clearing may decide.
The final version and a mark-up version relative to the draft rules published on 2 May 2012 are available on this page. Please note that the Buy-In procedures of Oslo Clearing, in Regulation 6.2, remain unchanged, pending on an amended version that incorporates the requirement of compulsory automatic triggers, in accordance with art. 15 Regulation (EU) No 236/2012 on short selling and certain aspects of credit default swaps.
