Further to ASX Notice 0200.18.03, following feedback received from mFund users during the February Roundtables, ASX has made minor amendments to the CHESS 10 Business Technical Specification

A summary of these modifications is:

  • Logic associated with the use of the Linking Transaction ID has been simplified;
  • The Transfer functionality has been reworked to meet industry requirements;
  • A number of Participant and Dealer Group values on the MT737/MT738 Investor Details message suite have been renamed or removed;
  • A ‘HIN’ field has been added to MT740; and
  • The value ‘n/a’ has been made as allowable value on a number of new fields.

Please note that the Transfer functionality included in CHESS 10  may not have received regulatory clearance by the go-live date. ASX is retaining the functionality in the mandatory technical development with it going operational subject to such regulatory clearance.
