January 21, 2021

We have a product release due on the 29th January 2021 at 1700 UK local time.

The release includes 2 new EMIR validations, 11 EMIR validation amendments and 1 new Global Reference data file.

For features which are configurable (TR Accuracy MI report and validations etc), you will be able to log into your management portal and turn them off if you do not wish to see the functionality.

If your TRAC version is from before 18 December 2020, please download new version from CN Portal: ‘Resources -> Downloads’ as your current TRAC version will no longer work following release date.

If your TRAC version is from after 18 December 2020, this update will not require any action from users of TR Accuracy or TR Completeness. All changes will automatically be applied to your solution from the release date.


Please let us know if you have any questions: .
